On 28 November 2006, a special agreement was signed on the future of employees’ jobs at the Port of Larnaca on the southeast coast of Cyprus. The agreement will, in principle, safeguard workers’ jobs after the development and management of the port, including Larnaca marina, are transferred to a strategic investor. The move represents part of a more general development framework plan for Larnaca port and marina, in line with the Design-Build-Finance-Operate (DBFO) method.

On 29 November 2006, a new law regulating the operation of shops and the terms and conditions of employment for shop employees, Law 155(I)/2006 (in Greek, 909Kb PDF) , came into force, following its publication in the Official Gazette. Although it is referred to as a new law, it essentially has as its basis the Shop Assistants’ Law (Cap. 185), as amended from 1942 to 2003. The weaknesses of the previous legislation made it imperative to devise an updated version of the law – a procedure which took almost five years and which was the outcome of constant, arduous negotiations at tripartite level.  http://www.mlsi.gov.cy/mlsi/dlr/dlr.nsf/All/3C44BBC32D40CFCDC22572370033098A/$file/N 155(I) 2006.pdf

On 12 September 2006, following a difficult round of bargaining – both during the direct talks and at the subsequent mediation stage – the social partners in the hotel sector accepted the mediation proposal put forward by the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance (Υπουργείου Εργασίας και Κοινωνικών Ασφαλίσεων, MLSI ), and signed a new collective agreement. The three-year agreement, which is effective retroactively from 1 April 2006 until 31 December 2008, covers around 16,000 workers in the hotel sector. However, 4,000 of these workers are immigrants who in practice may not be covered by the agreement, judging by previous violations of collective agreements on the part of the employers in this regard.  http://www.mlsi.gov.cy/mlsi/mlsi.nsf/dmlindex_en/dmlindex_en?OpenDocument
