President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades will meet trade unions on Tuesday to conclude negotiations for the introduction of the minimum national wage in Cyprus.

In a written statement regarding the President’s schedule for next week, the Director of his Press Office, Andreas Iosif said that the meeting is scheduled for 0930 on Tuesday with the participation of Labour and Social Insurance Minister Kyriakos Koushos, employers’ associations Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry as well as the Federation of Employers and Industrialists and trade unions PEO, SEK and DEOK.

The introduction of the minimum national wage in Cyprus is a government priority, said Iosif, adding that the President wants to undertake an initiative to complete negotiations with social partners, which was at the final stage but was not completed due to the death of Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou.

Koushos had said last week he hoped there will be an agreement on the minimum national wage before the president completes his term next year.
