Journists' wage hike soon, Law Ministry gives its opinion

Law Ministry gives its opinion on wage board recommendations 
The last hurdle for the notification of the recommendations of the Wage Boards for working journalists and non-journalists and other newspaper employees has been cleared with the Union Law Ministry giving its opinion on them.
Sources in the Union Labour and Employment Ministry told The Hindu that the Labour Secretary and the Cabinet Secretary had been asked to prepare a note in this connection for the Cabinet's approval. The Law Ministry has not made any adverse comments about the wage component, but has made a few observations about some recommendations which, according to it, were not part of the terms and references of the wage board, according to the sources.
Labour Ministry has received replies from several departments on the recommendations of Justice Majithia Wage Board for journalists and non-journalists and they will be sent to the Union Cabinet within a week.
“I circulated to all the ministries the report from Justice Majithia. I got comments from Information and Broadcasting and Commerce Ministries. Only thing I had to get was from Law. I got it yesterday. Within a week I am sending it to the cabinet on which a note will be prepared,” Union Labour Minister Mallikarjuna Kharge told reportersat Hyderabad on 20th May on the sidelines of a function.
Justice Majithia submitted his report on Wage Board for journalists and non-journalists in December last and the matter has been pending for cabinet approval since then.
Journalists unions including the Confederation of Newspapers and News Agencies Employees Organisations have held protests across the country for early notification of the Wage Board recommendations.
They had also sought intervention of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi for notifying the Wage Board recommendations.
