In some cases police were met with stone throwing rioters.

The Vice-Ministro de Seguridad Publica (deputy minister of Security), Gustao Araya, explained that the police presence has increased in these two neighbourhoods.

These are confusing times. The port administrator, the Junta de Administración Portuaria y de Desarrollo Económico de la Vertiente Atlántica (Japdeva), assures that the posers are open and working. However, workers of the Sinjatrap union continue to their indefinite strike action.

Monday afternoon, the government reminded union leaders and workers of the plan by the Japdeva to invest at least ¢406 billion colones in port infrastructure.

Following a meeting last Monday afternoon between the Minister of Labour, Víctor Morales and the Japdeava president, Ann McKinley, with union leaders, José Luis Castillo, representing the workers said “the strike continues.”

Castillo explained that government plan is welcomed, but their opposition and reason for the strike, is against the APM Terminals concession contract to build a megaport at Moín.

The Dutch company was awarded the concession in 2010 by the Chinchilla administration (2010-2014) and ratified  by the courts earlier this month.

President Luis Guillermo Solís is holding firm that the contract cannot be changed. Minister Morales reconfirmed the President’s words on Monday, that the contract cannot be renegotiated and “the union and government should focus their efforts on improving Japdeva.”
