Day 8: Fuel Truckers Suspend Work For Safety Concerns

Truckers are no joining the strike they are concerned for their safety and working conditions, according to the president of the fuel truckers association

Blockades by strikers at the RECOPE plants in La Garita (Alajuela), Barranca (Puntarenas) and Ochomogo (Cartago) are affecting the supply of gasoline in Guanacaste and the Greater Metropolitan Area of San Jose (GAM), and the rest of the country.

In addition, truckers have decided to stop work. They claim the lack of safety and poor conditions they have faced in the different Recope distribution centers and roads have exposed them to risks, without any support or protection from the police.
