Workers unhappy with new minimum wage

It took the Colombian Government longer to announce the increase in the national minimum wage salary that it did for workers’ unions to say they will file a suit with the Constitutional Court to fight it.

According to Julio Roberto Gómez, president of the General Labor Confederation (CGT), the 22,800 peso increase is offensive and laughable; “if we hadn’t seen the Minister of the Treasury with our own eyes we would think it was a joke, but unfortunately it’s a reality,” he said.

Gómez explained that the Government failed to consider the aspects that are supposed to be taken into account for the increase amount such as past and expected inflation rates and productivity; this will be the basis of any legal action taken by workers’ organizations moving forward.
