Over 400 Bank of Cyprus employees opt to leave voluntarily

Over 400 Bank of Cyprus employees have opted to take advantage of the fourth voluntary retirement scheme since 2013 offered by the island’s largest lender. The deadline expired on Friday, at 3pm, and the number is between 400 and 500, insiders told CNA.

At the same time, the management now plans to proceed with restructuring plans and to submit on Monday a detailed proposal on the steps to be followed before the board of directors.
