Workers with the OSPYA bus company in Paphos announced plans for a demonstration in Nicosia on Tuesday, December 11, should an agreement with the transport ministry over salary and service reforms fail. Company leadership have criticized the government's failure to pay back wages and for attempts to force the company to provide services to school children. The demonstration will reportedly take place at the Presidential Palace in Nicosia beginning at 09:30 (local time). Drivers in Paphos and Limassol continued their indefinite strike as of Monday, December 10, and representatives indicated they will continue until salaries are paid out. Associated transportation disruptions are expected near the demonstration site.
Individuals in Cyprus are advised to monitor developments to the situation, confirm their bus reservations, and anticipate delays, cancelations, and other service disruptions.
