why not "B" though "increased wages" sounds a bit weird

A too.

150b is used to cover the increase, not the increased final wage.

..result of negotiations with... is as business phrased as it gets. Like a comment quoted straight out of the Financial Times.

Yeah A as well but wonder would you guys have selected D if we change it to appear bit differently? If NO then why not?
D. negotiated increases in wages THAT it expected to approve

I would still not select D. The reason being, in this context "increases in wages" is not usage, "increase in wages" makes more sense.

A) increase in wages that it expected to approve as a result of negotiations
(B) increased wages it expected to approve from negotiations
(C) increasing wages expected to be approved as a result of negotiating
(D) negotiated increases in wages it expected to approve
(E) increases expected to be approved in wages from negotiating

B,C are eliminated because the sentence talked about the increase in wage not the wage itself
For D, negotiated increase in wage? Does it mean the negotiation has already been done. Eliminated
E is just awkward.
