What is the CAPSS employers’ association?

CAPSS is a business association created by CSC associates in 1995 in accordance with the Law which regulates the right to trade union association (19/77). It is a non-profit body, independent of the public administration, and governed by statutes and its own governing bodies.

Its main tasks are to represent, defend and promote the economic, social and professional interests of its affiliates.
