Puerto Rico union sues governor, oversight board over pension cuts

April 12 (Reuters) - A Puerto Rico labor union sued the U.S. territory’s governor and financial oversight board on Wednesday, saying pension cuts being proposed as part of the island’s fiscal turnaround plan are unconstitutional.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in San Juan, seeks an injunction blocking the implementation of the plan. (Reporting by Nick Brown; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
