Public views are sought by the National Wages Council (NWC) as part of its considerations on what should be included in its annual wage recommendations.

The NWC is a tripartite body made up of representatives from the government, employer, and employee. According to an official press release on Wednesday (Mar 21), the council is set to assemble in April and May 2018 to develop its annual guidelines on wage and employment-related issues.

It said that several factors such as Singapore’s economic performance as well as the domestic and global economic outlook will be included in its deliberations on wage recommendations. Additionally, it also takes into account the country’s economic competitiveness, labour market conditions, inflation, and productivity growth in the decision-making process.

“Members of the public are encouraged to share their views on what could be included in the annual wage recommendations, as well as on other employment-related issues,” it stated in the announcement.

The feedbacks can be sent through mail to NWC’s address on Havelock Road or email at nwc_secretariat@mom.gov.sg by 11 April 2018.
