Unionized CAPA employees stop work in Chetumal

Chetumal, Q.R. — Unionized CAPA employees in Chetumal have temporarily stopped work in protest of failed salary increases. The salary increase was agreed upon during the former governorship of Carlos Joaquín González.

Due to a lack of response a year later, the unionized Drinking Water and Sewer Commission (CAPA) employees suspended work to pressure the company to meet their demands. The CAPA workers remained inside the technical area of the company’s facilities on Insurgentes Avenue while they waited for management.

In addition to salary issues, employees are also looking to have safety equipment for all areas of CAPA technicians as well as proper uniforms for field personnel.

The unionized workers were set to meet with Comisión de Agua Potable y Alcantarillado (CAPA) Director Alberto Covarruvias Cortés and the Union representative Monday to try and reach an agreement.
