Minister Touts Uruguay’s Collective Bargaining System

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguay has one of the world’s most developed collective bargaining systems, as demonstrated by the high percentage of tri-party agreements finalized, Labor Minister Ernesto Murro said.

Since 2005, between 85 percent and 92 percent of bargaining rounds have led to agreements involving the government, employers and workers, the minister said during a conference at the Spanish Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Navigation.

The collective negotiation process “is complex, but it is advancing within the expected deadlines and with the flexibility the government has promoted,” Murro said.

“We have 19 agreements signed, 10 close to signing, seven progressing in negotiations, seven that have just entered the first stages of bargaining and 14 facing difficulties in the talks,” Murro said, referring to the open wage councils.

The labor minister said that since taking office on March 1, he had participated in more than 700 meetings and among his achievements was the introduction of electronic pay stubs and the “I Study and Work” program, which provides young students with work experience.
