We study the BRST symmetries in the SU(3) linear sigma model which is constructed through the introduction of a novel matrix for the Goldstone boson fields satisfying geometrical constraints embedded in a SU(2) subgroup. To treat these constraints we exploit the improved Dirac quantization scheme. We also discuss phenomenological aspects in the mean field approach to this model.
