Electricity workers in north Cyprus to go on strike!!!

Workers in north Cyprus that work with the electricity company has gone on strike.
They announced a work stoppage for Wednesday and an indefinite strike for Friday to protest the reported expression of interest by the authorities to privatise the facility.

The strike measures follow recent media reports in north Cyprus that a number of ‘state’ organisations owe the utility millions in unpaid electricity bills.

Head of the union Kubilay Ozkirac recalled during a press conference to announce the strike measures, that last week they cut off the ‘economy ministry’s’ power due to unpaid bills.

He however noted that since the ‘government’ failed to take into consideration their message of determination, they decided to proceed to measures.

Ozkirac said they were against the financial protocol between Turkey and TRNC privatisation of the utility and AKSA, a private Turkish company that provides electricity to the country with a power plant in the Karpasia area.

But ‘economy and energy minister’ Hasan Tacoy said in a written statement that even though privatisation is not on the agenda El-Sen insists the strike is to protest privatisation.
