Plans continue for a national strike that has been called for Friday

An organization representing many public employee unions has reaffirmed plans to stage a national strike Friday.

This is the Bloque Unitario Sindical y Social Costarricense that says it would give more information Tuesday.

President Luis Guillermo Solís expressed a desire to derail plans for the strike by meeting with the group, but there have been no announcements of any meeting.

The Bloque represents at least 50 to 60 unions, nearly all of them of public employees.

The strike is an effort to defend current salaries and the government’s plan to restructure them. Individual strikes also are upset by the cost of living and a number of other issues.
At least two other organizations plan similar strikes in the following weeks.
