Trade unions call for revision in minimum wage

Kathmandu, July 12
Various trade union federations have demanded the government revise the minimum wage for workers it had announced recently. Nepal Trade Union Federation Independent, the Socialist Democratic Trade Union Federation, the National Democratic Trade Union Federation, the Independent Democratic Trade Union Federation, among other trade union organisations, have placed this demand before the government through a press release on Wednesday. They have called on the government to increase the minimum wage reasoning that it would be difficult to manage even a normal life with the minimum remuneration the government has determined. These trade union federations have accused the government of fixing the minimum wage against the agreement that it had reached with them. The government on July 8 fixed the monthly wage of workers at Rs 13,450. The trade unions have urged the government to increase the minimum wage to Rs 22,000, citing a situation would arise in which the workers working within the country would have to go for foreign employment owing to the low pay alone if the minimum remuneration was not raised. The trade unions have warned of launching an agitation if the decision on the fixed remuneration was not corrected. (RSS)
