TC unions to be represented in Brussels

13 January 2015

Turkish Cypriot education unions have gained the right to be equally represented at the European Trade Union Committee for Education (ETUCE), ‘Kibris Postasi’ reports.

Following years of opposition by the Greek Cypriots against the representation of Turkish Cypriot education unions, it has now been decided that there will be equal and rotating representation between the unions on both sides.

KTOEOS union head Sener Elcil said that this was an historic event and that the rotating representation will begin in March after ETUCE meets in Brussels.

He noted that the union had been campaigning for this outcome since the year 2000.
