    Costa Rica ratifies worker's rights bill The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The president of Costa Rica, Laura Chinchilla, signed Agreement 189 of the International Labor Organization (ILO) on “Decent work for domestic workers and workers”.

    The ILO Convention on Domestic Work, which aims to ensure fair working conditions and decent wages for domestic workers, was signed today by Chinchilla and Labor Minister Olman Segura and will take effect in the coming days.

    “It provides that workers will have the same basic rights as all other workers, with reasonable work hours, weekly rest of at least 24 continuous hours, freedom of association and collective agreement,” said Segura in a press release.

    According to official data up to 2011, in Costa Rica there are about 135,500 domestic workers, of which 122,400 are women and 13,100 men, but only about 25,000 of them have social security.

    According to President Chinchilla, the signing of this agreement becomes a complement to local law already in place regarding the eight articles of the Labour Code that talk about “paid domestic work”

    Chinchilla said that the ILO Convention is an important tool to force employers to meet their obligations and the protection of the rights of workers. (EFE)
