Cyprus Lifeguards to go on strike for three hours on Friday

In a statement, the Pancyprian Association of Professional Lifeguards Psen said the main reason behind the decision was the government’s failure to upgrade the salaries of professional lifeguards.

Furthermore, lifeguards are calling for the profession to be officially regulated like it is in the rest of the EU, “as it involves providing first aid and saving human lives on the beaches of Cyprus.”

The work stoppage will begin at 10.30am and end at 1.30pm.
