Next wage indexation postponed to 1st April 2023

Back to All Thought Leadership

On Wednesday 15 June 2022, the Bill of law 8000A, transposing certain measures provided by the tripartite agreement signed on 31 March 2022 by and between the Government and the social partners UEL, the LCGB and the CGFP, (the “Tripartite Agreement”) has been voted and should come into force soon  after its publication (the “Law”).
