aya(qCOSTARICA) Unlike the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE), the state water and sewer utility – the Acueductos y Alcantarillados (AyA)  – had a different reaction to the publication of “gross” salaries by legislator Otto Guevara.

AyA general manager, Jose Alberto Moya, says he does not fully agree with the wages reported by the Centralized Collection System (SICERE) of the Costa Rican Social Security Fund (CCSS), but, the institution cannot touch employee salaries or reduce payroll.

Moya said that neither president nor the board of the AyA can modify the number of positions, as this is approved by the Civil Service. Likewise for any increase in the number of employees must be approved by the Budget Authority (PA) Ministry of Finance.

The AyA chief corrected that wages at the utility do not increase because of a collective agreement, rather, due to bonuses, annuities and other benefits regulated by the Civil Service.

Moya admitted “failure” in analyzing the effectiveness of its current work force of 3,430 employees and that the utility is doing “a study of the structure to achieve more efficiency.”
