Two-hour strike at Paphos International Airport

Sigma Live – 6 July, 2016 – Paphos’ international airport ground handling services staff of Swissport and LGS companies will hold a two hour strike today starting at 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm, over a pay dispute with their employers. 
Some delays are expected to occur as the strike affects 23 flights. Delays are expected to occur for passengers of 12 flights arriving on the island, but also for travelers from eight flights that departing from Cyprus.
According to the companies unionst, the strike was necessary as a collective agreement, which should have been renewed in May, had not been signed by the companies’ employers and as a result an increment due in April had not been paid.
