Official Holidays are Back at Costa Rican Ports of Limón and Moín
Port activity will once again come to a standstill on 11 days of the year due to the abolition of the reforms agreed with workers.
Friday, August 27, 2010
Costa Rica's constitutional court has ruled illegitimate a reform by the country's Atlantic Port Development Management Board (JAPDEVA in Spanish) that specified the port union's board of directors. The port union (abbreviated SINTRAJAP in Spanish) had negotiated the reform with the government.
The Supreme Court has annulled an agreement reached with port workers who endorsed the concession of the Limón and Moín port operations.
In what seems a never ending story, the government of Costa Rica has opened the possibility for new dialogue with unions from the ports of Limon and Moin.
On May authorities will unveil the bidding rules for handling these two Costa Rican ports to private operators.
An ongoing conflict over who controls the Port Workers Union would not affect the government’s initiative to privatize it.
