Council workers at Mehmetcik council have been out on strike this week.

In an echo of the events of last year at Nicosia council, they have stopped working because their salaries have not been paid. In addition, employer national insurance and pension contributions have not been made.

They have been blockading the council building but have been warned by police that this is illegal and that they are danger of being arrested.
