Unions say business reclassification aims to pay lower wages

Santo Domingo.- The major labor unions (CNUS, CASC and CNTD) on Tues. affirmed that the employers’ insistence with the business reclassification aims to pay lower wages which in their view would contribute to widen the poverty gap and inequality among workers and the Dominican population.

They said that face with “this intransigence of the employers,” the trade unions will protest in front of the National Business Council offices on Thursday, the 30th, starting 10am.

“The proposal of entrepreneurs extracted from the one stipulated by Law 187-17 that establishes a Regulatory Regime for the Development and Competitiveness of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) would convert a large company into a small one and a medium into a micro company, to evade not only their contributions to the Treasury but to continue to justify the depressed salaries they pay their workers.”
