Peeved labor walks out of Dominican Republic wage hike talks

Santo Domingo.- Visibly annoyed union leaders on Wednesday walked out of the National Salaries Committee meeting, when management representatives conditioned a wage increase on a reclassification of large businesses and MSMEs.

In view of the aborted meeting which began at 10:30am the business leaders only said their proposal includes a significant percentage above inflation.

“We will not accept anything less than a 30% en salary increase,” warned union leader Rafael –Pepe- Abreu.

The union leaders had proposed 30% increase on the minimum wage going into the meeting but left the Labor Ministry shortly after business representatives arrived, 90 minutes late.
