A few weeks ago I told you about the postponement of our congress.

After consulting the members of the Executive Bureau and our Cypriot colleagues who are organising this congress, I am in a position today to inform you of our unanimous decision to postpone the YUS congress and seminar in the spring of 2022.

It’s a sad decision, but it’s wise. Maintaining the congress in October this year is the risk of having a lot of absentees in Cyprus. Indeed, many of our colleagues may not be allowed to travel abroad this year. Organising a congress in October means launching invitations today. However, health measures are still too blurred for this decision to be made.

We want to put every opportunity on our side to bring together all the representatives of the trade unions who are members of our committee. That is why, with the agreement of our Cypriot colleagues, the congress will take place in the spring of 2022 in Protaras.

I sincerely hope that you will understand our decision, which is not easy to make. We are aware that we do not respect the statutes of our committee and that our mandate is automatically extended for an additional 2 years. All members of the Executive Bureau take responsibility for this decision and will maintain all their activities until then. I thank them very much.

I invite you to consult us or join our working groups. Other think tanks can be created at your request, do not hesitate to contact us. 

Hope to se you all as soon as possible!

President of SCECBU
