Board-level Representation


Employees have no statutory right to be represented at board level in Cyprus, although for a period there were union representatives on the boards of two banks.

There is no legal right in Cyprus for employees to be represented at board level. In 2006 and 2007, union pressure led to the appointment of a representative of the bank employees’ union ETYK to the boards of two major banks. However, following the banking crisis, union representation at this level has ceased. (Indeed one of the banks no longer exists.)
