 President of the Cyprus Turkish Public Officials Union (KTAMS), Güven Bengihan, said that if there is no response to the demands and suggestions regarding the Law Regulating the Monthly (Salary-Wage) and Other Allowances of Public Employees, there would be wild-cat strikes, BRT reported.

Bengihan, in a written statement on behalf of 18 unions, noted that as of today, there has been no response to their meeting with the Ministry of Finance officials about the law and their demands on this issue.
