The plantation owners agree on basic wages and incentives for the plantation workers.

Minister of Labour and Foreign Employment Manusha Nanayakkara points out that 09 plantation companies that met today (10) agreed to give the proposed daily wage and productivity-based incentive to be paid to plantation workers.

The relevant plantation companies have agreed to the minister to pay the amount as wages to the plantation workers from this month.

This agreement was reached during a discussion held today (10) between Labour and Foreign Employment Minister Manusha Nanayakkara and estate companies.

Commenting further in this regard, Minister Manusha Nanayakkara said as follows.

“09 estate companies agreed to pay the increased salary and incentive today. Many estate companies agreed to pay the daily allowance from this month and the proposed allowance based on their earnings.

Minister Manusha Nanayakkara said that the estate companies have indicated that they can get more allowances for the fixed amount based on the effectiveness and this is a great achievement for the plantation worker community in Sri Lanka.

Member of Parliament Mahindananda Aluthgamage joined for this event and a group of officials including Labour Commissioner General joined it.
