Conades meets again to discuss wage increase
The workers sector said they are willing to lower their initial proposal to increase the Unified Basic Salary (SBU for its Spanish acronym) for 2015, in the case that employers also make flexible their position, said Jaime Arciniega, chief of the labor sector before the Conades.
The Conades expects today in Quito, try for the second time, an agreement on the new SBU for 2015.
On December 19, at the first session of Conades on the subject, Luis Poveda, representative of the employers, proposed an increase of $ 13.26, while Arciniega proposed an increase of $ 54.4.
“To think that employers, by effects of oil prices must only adjust the workers more, is no fair,” said Arciniega, indicating that this sector could lose its proposal to $ 37.4.
If there is an absence of consensus after the meeting today, the Ministry of Labor Relations will decide the rise.
