According to a report on Fin24 the ANC wants the labour movement to clarify its stance on the minimum wage.

Minimum wage needs clarity – Godongwana which first appeared on 13 March 2015.

Johannesburg – The labour movement’s stance on the minimum wage needs to be clarified, ANC economic transformation cluster head Enoch Godongwana said on Thursday.

“In the manifesto of the African National Congress we made a commitment that we’ll look at the modalities of the implementation of the minimum wage,” Godongwana told the National Union of Mineworkers’ (NUM) national bargaining conference in Midrand, Gauteng.

“You as the labour movement, you are not as coherent as you are supposed to be on the minimum wage, but key issues arise out of the minimum wage which I want to leave with you to debate,” Godongwana said.

“The first question is whether we are talking about a universal or sectoral [minimum wage].  That’s going to be the challenge.  Are we going to have a minimum wage across all sectors…or [are] we going to have a sectoral minimum wage?”

That debate was not an abstract one, as it was taking place in the National Economic Development and Labour Council.
