Impregilo Not Complying to Wage Agreements

By Iceland Review

The Icelandic Labour Union – ASÍ announced to the Ministry of Social Affairs last night that foreign employees at the Kárahnjúkar dam in east Iceland are often being paid 50 thousand kronas less than the minimum wage.

Minister of Social Affairs Árni Magnússon stated, “If this is correct it is a very serious matter. We have been building up a social welfare system in Iceland and we will not tolerate people who do not respect the wage laws of our country. ” The labour union continues to look at the case and will be meeting with the minister again very soon.
