Bolivia private sector without agreement on salary increase for 2015

La Prensa reports:



The Confederation of Private Employers of Bolivia (CEPB) noted that they don’t know about the wage increase proposal submitted by the industry and asks that the negotiations on this issue be tripartite.

He said he is unaware of the proposal presented by the National Chamber of Industries (CNI). [no wonder the ruling party does whatever they want with our economy, with our lives!]


In the meantime, and until the private sector reaches consensus, the workers are aiming at an unrealistic request of 15%, under the patronage of the government’s demagogue! To read about this, in Spanish, please use the following link:
