Honduran businessmen reject minimum wage increase proposal
The Honduran Private Sector Council is not ready to accept the proposal for an immediate minimum wage increase for workers of $291 (5500 Lempiras).
Monday, November 3, 2008
The tripartite commission including worker's union leaders, businessmen and the Secretary of Labor will begin, in the next few days, the process of negotiating the new adjustment for minimum wage that will come into effect starting January 1, 2009.
The wage rise for workers proposed by government representatives and effective from 1st January, has been adopted by the National Wages Council.
The Government is relying on a consensus between the parties, but private enterprise and workers have very different proposals.
In the absence of agreements at negotiating tables between employers and employees, the President approved the increment.
Representatives of private enterprise, government and workers will meet at the National Minimum Wage Commission, scheduled for this week, to ratify a 6% increase starting from 16 August.
