(Apr. 11/13) Manitoba’s Labour Management Review Committee (LMRC) has reviewed the minimum wage and made recommendations on rate changes as well as use of an indexation formula.
CRFA has expressed our members’ concerns to the Management Caucus of the LMRC. The caucus has told us it will not recommend indexation to Labour Minister Jennifer Howard.
However, as the management and labour segments of the caucus disagreed on minimum wage rate changes, separate recommendations were submitted to the Minister. Government’s decisions on both the minimum wage rate and indexation are expected in the provincial budget on April 16.
