Palace hints wage increases likely

Manila (2 June) -- Malacaņang is confident that private sector workers will soon get their much-awaited increases in daily wage, saying that efforts of the tripartite boards looking at the wage structure could bear results "within the week."

Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Rogelio C. Peyuan said the likely wage hike will be the welcome news to the labor sector, particularly the minimum wage earners.

Last May 1 during the Labor Day celebration, Peyuan said President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo had ordered the various Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Boards to hasten the process of resolving the P75 across-the-board wage increase petition from the private labor sector.

For government workers, the President had announced that they will continue to have yearly salary increases until 2012 pursuant to the salary standardization law.

Upon the President's directive, the National Wages and Productivity Commission (NWPC) said the wage board in Metro Manila is deliberating on the pending wage petition and is expected to come out with a decision this week. (PIA-Bohol) [top]
