2016/2017 National Wages Council Invites Views on Annual Wage Guidelines

  1. The National Wages Council (NWC), a tripartite body made up of employer, union and government representatives, will convene in April and May 2016 to develop its annual wage and wage-related guidelines.

  2. In its deliberations on wage guidelines, the NWC considers factors such as Singapore’s economic performance, as well as the domestic and global economic outlook. At the same time, the NWC takes into account Singapore's economic competitiveness, labour market conditions, inflation, and productivity growth.

  3. Members of the public are encouraged to share their views on what could be included in the annual wage recommendations, as well as other wage-related issues. Feedback received will be considered by the NWC as part of its deliberations.
