This paper provides an overview and analysis of labor relations in Costa Rica, with an emphasis on labor relations at international corporations operating in Costa Rica and the influence of powerful trade unions operating in Costa Rica’s public sector.

The concluding section considers the implications of trade union power for foreign corporations operating in Costa Rica.
