“SOCIAL partners within the National Economic Development and Labour Council (Nedlac) on Saturday agreed to jointly appoint a panel of experts to report on a proposed threshold for the minimum wage, Nedlac said on Sunday.  With business and labour having moved closer on the proposed wage, agreement was reached to have the team report back within 70 days of the panel having been constituted.  According to a statement by Nedlac management, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa — who is heading the broader discussion — had taken “a lot of encouragement out of this process”, expressing confidence that an appropriate level and process would be agreed on soon”.
