The working class in Honduras can expect to achieve an increase of approximately ten percent for the year.
Daniel Durón, Secretary General of the General Workers Center of Honduras (CGTH), reported that negotiations with employers and the government are being held on Thursday, so they can agree on the corresponding percentage increases for rural and urban employees.
Secretary Durón assured working individuals that the negotiations are based on the inflation rate recorded last year, and the rate of growth of the economy, “which means 10%, which is a good base.”
The three negotiating parties consist of workers, employers and government representatives. The plan is to complete negotiations by January 15, 2012.
