The union that represents workers in the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social said Monday that they would not strike today.
A number of unions, primarily those in education, plan a protest today that will end up at Casa Presidencial. They oppose a veto of a detailed rewrite of the labor code that results in lower salaries for some.
The Caja union, the Unión Nacional de Empleados de la Caja y la Seguridad Social, said it supported the idea of the protest today but that the Caja is experiencing a financial crisis and a strike by employes would damage the institution. However, the union said it is looking to the future when such a measure might be appropriate.
