Posted On 29 Dec 2011
The Ministry of Labour Relations set the Ecuadorian base salary at $ 292for 2012. The increase was mandated by the State portfolio as workers and employers failed to reach an agreement.
The actual base salary, $ 264, expires this month and was raised $ 28 (10.6%). However, labor unions demanded an increase of $ 60 while the business association proposed $ 13 increase.
To set the Unified basic salary increase, inflation and productivity were taken into account.
The salary raise takes effect since January 2012.
