Imprenta strike is illegal, labor court determines

A labor court judge has ruled that a strike by government workers at the Imprenta Nacional is illegal. The strike centers on a pay dispute.

The decision came from the Juzgado de Trabajo del II Circuito Judicial de San José. The decision will become official in three days, and executives at the Ministerio de Gobernación, Policía y Seguridad Pública will decide what steps to take, they said.

The Imprenta Nacional published the La Gaceta official newspaper. Laws, proposed laws, decrees and a host of other actions must be published there before they come into force. The government is publishing a digital version now.

In other action, the ministry said that the Registro Nacional and the offices of the Imprenta are accepting documents for publication.
