    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Ratified labor groups will take to San Jose’s streets tomorrow to protest the 0.43% salary increase enacted by the Costa Rican government for workers in the public sector for the first half of 2014.

    The march was organized by the National Association of Public and Private Employees (ANEP) with the participation of the National Association of Educators (ANDE), staff of Immigration, National Press and the Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE).

    The Secretary General of ANEP, Albino Vargas, said Monday at a press conference that workers will protest outside the Ministry of Finance, in downtown San Jose, and then move to other areas of the capital.

    “ANEP has told their people to come to downtown San Jose to meet. We want to make it clear that we will block the road from 7:00 am (1300 GMT),” Vargas said.

    The union said last week that the march is motivated not only by the low salary increase, but also by “a series of misguided and bad practices of public policy” and episodes of corruption.

    The authorities of the Ministry of Security have recommended drivers take alternate routes in the morning.

    The unions requested an increase of 3.62%, which was rejected by the government in early February.

    The government sets wage increases each semester for the public and private sectors separately, usually based on inflation. (ACAN-EFE)
