Caja union says it will skip general strike set for today

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.
