Accord ends Patria Justa strike

The government will renew its efforts to improve the public docks in Moín as part of an eight-part agreement that ended what was being called a general strike.

Casa Presidencial released the two-page document that had been negotiated between union representatives and executive branch officials.

The agreement was far less than what the unions said they wanted.

The unions, organized under the name Patria Justa, marched Monday but their numbers seem to be smaller than usual.  The Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad said that only 87 percent of the workforce was absent.

There were no disruptions.

Union reps met with Luis Paulino Mora Lizano, a vice minister.

The government also agreed to submit some bills to the legislature.
