SEK trade union­ist Elias Demetriou said ear­lier on CyBC ra­dio that the unions had asked the Min­is­ter to ac­tively sup­port the ef­forts of the work­ers to max­imise the value of the or­gan­i­sa­tion by keep­ing the sta­tus of the pub­lic en­tity.

Demetriou said the unions re­spect the Min­is­ter’s po­si­tion but added that “we as unions dis­agree and as I have said the par­lia­men­tary par­ties are on our side, there­fore we be­lieve that we have won this bat­tle”.
