Confédération des Travailleurs des Secteurs Publique et Privé has issued a press communiqué after that the gouverment hava annonced tthat the salary increase is Rs 400.00 across the floor.
The “Confederation des Travailleurs des Secteurs Publique et Privé (CTSP)” made the following proposals:
1. Rs 1000 for all workers earning less than Rs 16,000.
2. Rs 8000 for all pensioners, widows and invalids.
Government final proposal is Rs 400.
We understand that the figure is based on inflation rate.
However, since we fear that Construction workers will not be compensated as up to now the National Remuneration Board has not stated anything on 22% increase in salary agreed between Employers and CTSP since 2017.
Furthermore, the NRB just issued a report on 30 Remuneration Orders and increased salary keep the relativity in salary following the coming up of the National Minimum Wage. This report came out in September 2018 and the Minister of Labour made no follow up on same. Thus, rendering caduc the Rs 400 Salary Compensation.
We hope the Government will give special attention to the above 2 specific cases.
