The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The employees from the Municipality of San José resumed their work today, this after the strike held yesterday due to the lack of tools for work.

Yesterday about 300 workers from the Department of Parks and Green Areas refused to resume their work in the municipal nursery facilities located in San Sebastián.

The main reason was because of the worker’s discomfort that allegedly started last January when the ombudsmen of the municipality and union representatives signed an agreement for the acquisition of funds for the improvement of infrastructure that is responsible for servicing the parks of the capital; however the agreement had not been met.

However, Tuesday night another agreement was issued. Randall Bermúdez, employee representative, explained that the administration pledged to improve conditions in a period of six months.

“There are more urgent conditions, such as improving the working units and vehicles that carry staff, which we will work on as soon as possible. The remainder will happen this month and next month.”

After this, the process will take longer because there are all hierarchies internally therefore it could be six months to solve all staff problems and execution of the budget, said Bermúdez.

It was also agreed that once a month representatives of the administration will join union representatives, to discuss progress in the improvement of the employee conditions. (Crhoy)
