Victory of the workers at the port in Limassol Cyprus, the collective agreement was signed and the strike ended. The struggle of the workers was justified by the signing of the first collective agreement and therefore the strike ends and the workers have already got a job. The workers went on strike when the company refused to agree to the conclusion of the collective agreement.

According to statements by the representative of SEGDAMELIN PEO Christakis Christofi, last week a letter was sent to the company requesting for the signing of the collective agreement. However the company did not respond. Yesterday, after many hours of discussions and after an agreement was reached in the negotiations, the management of the company withdrew.

Today, new discussions took place that reached an agreement and a few hours ago the collective agreement was signed that guarantees the rights of the workers in the port.
Only the struggles that do not take place are lost!
