Commentary: Non-wage benefits package on Labor Day

by Bapa Bedu

Manila (26 April) -- The celebration of Labor Day on May 1 is almost always marked with joy in the heart of the workforce in the country…

In this relation, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will bare a package on non-wage benefits but no salary increase on May 1, Labor Day, Labor Secretary Arturo Brion said Tuesday.

“President Arroyo will announce the good news on Labor Day” Brion said. “Now let me announce the not-so-bad news: many are speculating that on Labor Day we will give a new salary increase. This Labor Day, there is not going to be any salary increase because we will be decided by the regional wage boards.”

Brion said the regional boards are currently deliberating the various petitions for pay increase filed by various groups like the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines, which is asking for the P75 increase. He said the wage boards are expected to decide by July.

At the same time, Brion said he recommended that Arroyo not make April 30, Monday, a non-working holiday, saying this would be disadvantageous to both business and labor, especially for daily wage employees.

We hope that the non-wage benefits package will just the same elate the labor force in the country (PIA 12) [top]
