$500 thousand per worker for the Moin and Limon Ports
This is the amount that the union is demanding in exchange for agreeing to the eventual concession of the ports to the private sector as projected by the Government.
Monday, November 3, 2008
The union rejected the the $80 million proposal in benefits and pre-retirements presented by the Government, demanding that its 1400 members be paid a sum of approximately 700 million dollars.
The government said that the half a million dollar figure demanded per worker was "absurd and out of proportion."
Technical, political, and social aspects are conspired in tense dialogue between Government, unions, and opposition.
An assembly of workers from JAPDEVA, the entity who administers ports in the Costa Rican atlantic coastline, voted in favor of conceding the ports to private operators.
Workers from Japdeva have paralyzed port operations in Limón and Moín due to labor demands.
