The Ministry of Labor and Employment Promotion (MTPE) reported that began the dialogue process to institutionalize the review mechanism of the minimum living wage (RMV) in an informative session of the Special Commission for Productivity and Minimum Wages (CEPSM) of the National Council for Labor and Employment Promotion (CNTPE).
In this sense, the ministry indicated that the session was held with the participation of the International Labor Organization (ILO)“but with the absence of representatives of the employer sector, despite repeated invitations from the MTPE.”
“The MTPE presented the progress of the RMV institutionalization proposal, which was prepared with the technical assistance of the ILO, following the guidelines previously agreed upon in the CNTPE, in 2007, as well as the criteria of Convention 131 ILO “On Minimum Wage Fixing”. Although it has not yet been ratified by Peru, it has served as guidance in the processes undertaken by various countries in our region”, indicates a press release issued by the aforementioned portfolio.
According to the technical team of the Ministry of Labor, the proposal is of a preliminary nature and serves as a basis for receiving contributions from the CNTPE workers’ and employers’ organizations.
Likewise, he emphasized that the proposal will bring greater predictability to economic agents, since it will be known how much, when and how future adjustments to the minimum remuneration would be made and there will be greater transparency regarding the criteria used, allowing political discretion to be reduced.
