No solution in sight for Costa Rica judicial workers' strike

Thursday, July 27, 2017


Leaders of Costa Rican Judicial Branch workers’ unions, on strike since last week over a stalled pension reform plan, announced Monday that other public-sector unions will join them in a national protest.

The strike by some 13,000 judicial employees in all seven provinces has led to the suspension of trials, investigations, processing of criminal complaints, and even administrative procedures such as issuing criminal background checks that people need for job applications.
