Electrical Workers Union Sues to Overturn Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority Reform Law

The primary union at the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority has sued to overturn a law that was passed as part of the authority's restructuring agreement with creditors. The Union of Electrical Industry and Irrigation Workers (UTIER)filed the suit Tuesdayin Superior Court of San Juan. Alejandro GarcÃa Padilla signed the Law for the Revitalization of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, in February. In the suit the union claims the law limits the rights of PREPA workers to access justice, violates constitutional protections prohibiting impairments of contractual relations and laws guaranteeing equal protection of the laws. In addition the suit claims that the new law undermines the authority's pension system, which has an actuarial debt of $1.7 billion. Along with the union, union president \xC3ngel Figueroa Jaramillo, and member of the state council of the union and vice president of the retirement system of PREPA employees José Rivera Rivera are the plaintiffs. The defendants are PREPA, the Corporation for the Revitalization of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, the Puerto Rico Energy Commission, Puerto Rico Chief Financial Officer Melba Acosta Febo, Puerto Rico Treasurer Juan Zaragoza Gómez, Puerto Rico Secretary of State VÃctor Suárez Meléndez, and Puerto Rico Justice Secretary César Miranda RodrÃguez.
