Electrical Workers Union Sues to Overturn Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority Reform Law
Apr 20 16
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 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 JosÃ© Rivera Rivera are the plaintiffs.
