CMTU to demonstrate for minimum monthly wage increases


As part of the Trilateral National Committee on Labor and Social Consensus (TNCLSC), the minimum monthly wage was increased to 192,000 MNT on September 1. However, wages still haven’t been increased and officials from the Confederation of Mongolian Trade Unions (CMTU) are set to hold a peaceful demonstration at the square in front of Independence Palace today.

CMTU has delivered a seven demand statement to the government of Mongolia and Parliament, urging them to publicly reply to their demands by September 20. The demands obligate government to quickly start talks to increase wages and the welfare allowance, enhance the government’s price sustainability program, improve the flexibility of commercial bank contract criteria for housing loans, swiftly finalize the current problems concerning Oyu Tolgoi project investment, and ensure occupational and social security, as well as a vacancy guarantee.
