Costa Rican health employees to benefit from higher wages


Costa Rican health employees to benefit from higher wages

San Jose, Nov 22 (Prensa Latina) Over 62,000 Costa Rican Social Security Fund (CCSS) employees will benefit from a salary increase coming December, union sources confirmed.

The National Nurses Union (Sinae Afines) Secretary-General Lenín Hernández revealed that at the CCSS´ extraordinary meeting – held on Monday as deadline for deciding on the salary increase expired – its members strongly rejected the motion sent by the Executive Branch, with two votes in favor and seven against.

On September 15, CCSS´ Board of Directors agreed to the salary increase since 2020, but CCSS´ President Rodrigo Chaves opposed and claimed that wherher this agreement was not reversed, he would dismiss some CCSS´ directors.

In response, Costa Rica´s health sector unions asked the CCSS to defend this salary adjustment, and one of them stated that failure to comply with such a decision would violate collective bargaining and International Labor Organization (ILO) conventions.
