CYTA must remain a robust, modern and competitive organisation


23 May 2024, AKEL C.C. Press Office, Nicosia

A delegation of AKEL, headed by the Party’s Parliamentary Representative Giorgos Loukaides and consisting of AKEL MEP Giorgos Georgiou and Nicosia MP Christos Christofides, visited the headquarters of the semi-governmental organisation Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (CYTA), as well as the workplaces of the staff.

In a meeting with workers and trade union delegations, as well as with the CYTA Executive Director and members of the Board, AKEL reiterated its long-standing position to support and protect the public character of the organisation. At the same time, G. Loukaides stressed that CYTA’s successful course of all these years, the result primarily of the hard work of the employees, but also of the continuous modernisation and upgrading of the services offered by CYTA, has repeatedly refuted all those forces and circles who for years have dogmatically, in a submissive way, sought the privatisation of CYTA to serve private interests.

Discussing in detail the issues affecting workers, AKEL took upon it to contribute towards promoting pending issues concerning the adoption of regulations for promotions and the filling of vacant posts following the last voluntary departure of almost 400 workers, as well as the agreement on institutional innovation in relation to the protection and strengthening of the rights of workers OM contracts without a fixed term.

The AKEL delegation stressed that CYTA must remain a robust, modern and competitive organisation, continuing to be a pioneer in the country’s telecommunications sector, upgrading and expanding its services within the context of constantly changing technological needs. CYTA has over the years contributed a great deal to the country in various ways and has proven in practice that such a public sector organisation, perhaps in the most competitive sector of the economy, can achieve excellent results and the benefits of its achievements are channeled exclusively to society.
