SAN JUAN – The Irrigation & Electrical Workers Union (Utier by its acronym in Spanish) says it will provide details Tuesday on its lawsuit against the government for the unconstitutionality of the Puerto Rico Electrical Power Authority (Prepa) Revitalization Act, which was approved in February.

According to the utility’s largest union, it filed the suit at the First Instance Court in San Juan because Act 4 of 2016 “undermines contractual obligations with the employee Retirement System” of the public corporation.

The Utier claims the government made changes “in the priorities of the public corporation that would result in the detriment of its responsibilities with the workers and service to the people, imposing additional charges in the electric bill of all customers.”
