The union members and the sugar industry employees have agreed on a pay rise of 13 %.
The sugar industry employees have been debating over their salary increase for a while now. They have even gone on strike because the negotiations with the authorities had not brought the desired effects. Now, though, they have agreed over a 13 % pay increase.
But, the way the payment is to be done is still being debated. While some prefer to have the payment in one or two segments, others wish to have it spanned over a period of 4 years.
