NICOSIA – Buses will operate normally on Monday after bus drivers agreed on Sunday to call off their strike.
The decision came at the end of three hours of intensive talks that ended around 8.00 pm on Sunday. Communications Minister Tasos Mitsopoulos pledged that his ministry would cover all the sums deducted from bus companies for September. Bus companies then agreed to pay the full salaries of their staff for November.
The ministry also undertook to launch talks with companies to resolve differences.
