I just heard word that there will be a strike by the transportation union in Cabo tomorrow. While strike action may be averted, it is probably a good idea for visitors to be aware of the situation.
Apparently, the transportation union in Cabo are preparing for a transportation strike in the airport parking areas
Effective tomorrow Wednesday June 25th. 2008
Why a strike?
Apparently, this group feels forgotten by the Federal Authorities in the state transportation dispute.
What is the transportation union plan?
Blocking all DMC transportation from entering the airport terminals to create chaos for all new guests arrivals.
5 to 10 days starting tomorrow at 10:00AM
They will park their whole fleet (220 vehicles and motor coaches) in and around all airport parking + streets
New arrivals status?
Only the taxi concessionaire based at the airport will be able to board and transfer guests (their fleet consist of 80 units including vans suburban's and town cars)
Will there be enough vehicles?
Not for ALL the guests arriving in los Cabos
Some of the DMC's are arranging for priority status and the manager of the taxi concession will arrange for arriving passengers to be transported to a neutral area for pick up.
Guests should be prepared to pay an additional $5 per person to the transportation company.
Return transportation for the hotels to the airport should not be affected. It's probably a good idea to leave for the airport 3 hours in advance of flight departure.
