P5 Wage Increase in Bohol
« on: November 13, 2007, 06:21:27 PM »
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has announced that effective today (Nov. 11, Sunday) the new minimum wage increase of P5 pesos for Bohol takes effect.

DOLE –Bohol extension office chief Wilson Cenas said that the province will have a new P205 minimum wage (compared to only P200 before) for non-agricultural workers and P200 (P195 before) for those in the agriculture sector.

Cenas urged all employers to implement the new order pursuant to the Sept. 27 regional wage board approved Wage Order No. 13 granting a P9 increase in wages of workers in Metro Cebu and P5 in the rest of the region. Workers are likewise encouraged to report to the DOLE office any violation or non-compliance of the new minimum wage rate.

Labor groups earlier hit the RTWPB for allegedly delaying the implementation of the new wage order.

Jose Tomongha, chairman of the Alliance of Progressive Labor, said that the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board has delayed the publication of the Wage Order No. 13 necessary for the enforcement of the wage increase.

The Tomongha group, at the outset, also wondered why the regional wage group came up with the P9 increase when the labor sector had asked for a P75 across-the-board increase.

“We presented all the data and complete computation why we asked for a P75 increase, but they (wage board) could not justify why they only granted P9,” the labor group lamented.
