RTWPB sets public hearing on proposed wage hike

Baguio City (23 September) -- The Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board(RTWPB) will meet with the region's employee and labor sector this Friday, September 25, to get their inputs on the proposed wage hike.

Department of Labor and Employment Regional Director Ana Dione said laborers are seeking for a P75 minimum wage increase or from P260 to P335 a day citing inflation as the primary reason.

Johnny de la Cruz, Employers sector representative has earlier said that majority of the employers are not in favor of a wage hike since there is not much change in the economy of the region and they are still recuperating from the effects of global recession, the destructive typhoons last year and the El Nino recently.

Dione said a public hearing on the proposed wage hike will be conducted on October 1. Afterwhich, the RTWPB will decide to grant or deny the workers plea for wage increase.

According to Dione, among the possible reasons for wage increase addressing the needs of workers and the capacity of employers, effects on regional economic growth and comparison of wages with other regions.

The Cordillera has the highest minimum wage of P260 per day in Northern Luzon.

Other areas like Cebu, Davao and Metro Manila have already increased wages in the past months, Dione said. (PIA) [top]
