Wage board okays P27-hike in salaries

NORTHERN Mindanao’s  Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board has approved a P27-increase in the daily minimum wage of workers in the region, a far cry from what the Associated Labor Unions-Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (ALU-TUCP) petitioned for.

The Board approved the P27-increase in daily wages in northern Mindanao without lawyer Nicandro Borja, ALU-TUCP, being able to do anything about it.

Borja is an official of the ALU-TUCP who was recently appointed by President Duterte to the RTWPB. Borja’s group wanted a P320-raise.

The increase would bring the minimum wage in Region 10 from P338 to P365 a day.

“Wala gyud tay mahimo kay majority man sila,” said Borja, suggesting that he was outvoted.

Borja said he was forced to sign the Oct. 1 decision for a P27-increase out of respect for the decision of the majority of the board members.

The others who signed the decision are Engr. Milbert Macarambon of the labor group Workers’ Alliance Trade Union, management representatives Arsenio Sebastian and Rodencio Plaza, labor department regional director Jeoffrey Suyao, Trade and Industry regional director Linda Boniao, and National Economic Development Authority director  Mae Ester Guiamadel.

The decision would be sent to the National Wage Productivity Commission in Manila for final approval.

“Pero good as final na man to,” Borja said.
