The labor unions announced Monday evening an agreement to a preliminary dialogue with the Catholic Church as mediator, but would continue the strike action that today enters its 9th consecutive day.

On a tour of the various news television channels Monday night, President Carlos Alvarado continued his rhetoric of the importance of the Plan Fiscal (Tax Reform), while continuing an open door policy for dialogue.

The President did back off on the call that the unions, as a condition of dialogue, call off the strike.

In their statement following the President’s news ops, the group of union leaders made their own headlines on the late evening news, saying, “the union unity accepts mediation of the Catholic Church to explore a preliminary conversation with the government, however, in no way does it imply a suspension of the strike, which we will continue tomorrow (Tuesday) and for indefinite.”

The union leadership made their announcment from the Episcopal Conference offices in San Jose

The union leadership said it met, in a previous meeting, with the Archbishop of San José, José Rafael Quirós Quirós and other priests, to express their will to achieve a rapprochement between the parties, but was emphatic in reiterating its rejection of the “Fiscal Combo” and its explicit request that there be no repression against the people who are demonstrating.

“The indefinite strike continues and will not be postponed until the Bill is withdrawn,” said the statement.
