Stevedores at Limassol Port have on Tuesday afternoon halted an indefinite strike that began earlier today over alleged violations to their collective contracts.
Unions representing the port workers have entered into new mediation with government.
The new action followed a 24-hour warning strike on Monday. The stevedores were protesting a cut in their salaries as well as a loss of their 13th and 14th salaries.
The action came amidst Limassol Mayor Andreas Christou and the town’s Chamber of Commerce inviting companies in the hydrocarbon industry to make use of Limassol Port. Larnaca residents on Saturday protested the use of their town’s harbour by companies in the sector.
