ICE Workers Will Head To Picket Lines
The seven unions that represent employees of the Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) said yesterday that they were going on strike to protest telecom laws designed to put Costa Rica in compliance with the Central American Free-Trade Agreement with the United States (CAFTA).
ICE workers will walk out Nov. 26 according to Fabio Cháves, president of the Electricity and Telecommunications Workers Union. Details of the strike will be sorted out at a union assembly following the walkout.
Cháves said that electricity and phone service would not be interrupted during the strike, although ICE workers will leave their customer service and maintenance posts.
