Wage Advisory Committee To Commence Consultations With Major Stakeholders

PR – Grenada’s Attorney General and Minister for Legal Affairs, Labour  and Consumer Affairs, Sen. the Hon. Claudette Joseph has mandated the Wage  Advisory Committee under the Chairmanship of Dr. Curlan Gilchrist, to commence a  series of consultations with major stakeholders, with a view to revising Grenada’s  minimum wage as well as broaden the scope of the Minimum Wage Order. 

The Wage Advisory Committee was reconstituted on September 1, 2022, for a period  of three (3) years and was set up to address the minimum wage in Grenada, which was  not reviewed over the past eleven (11) years. The review of the minimum wage is one  of Government’s priorities and is aligned to the National Sustainable Development Goal  2: Vibrant, Dynamic, Competitive Economy with Supporting Climate and Disaster  Resilient Infrastructure, and Sustainable Development Goals 1, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10. 

The Committee is excited to begin these consultations, and will commence discussions  on Wednesday March 15, 2023, with key members from the Grenada Chamber of  Industry and Commerce and the Grenada Employers’ Confederation.  

The Committee will be holding further one-on-one consultations with other stakeholders, in addition to Town Hall Meetings in various communities, and urges all interested  parties to take advantage of the opportunities for input and feedback, as we work  together in ensuring the implementation of a sustainable Minimum Wage Policy for the  workers of Grenada. 

Please look out for the Town Hall Meeting schedule on the Government Information  Service (GIS), other media outlets and the Government’s various social media  platforms.
