Metro Manila Workers Soon Get P75 Wage Increase

Date Posted: Jun 1, 2010

Metro Manila workers are likely to celebrate their much awaited fight for P75 salary increase as their petition is on its final deliberation and set to come out with a decision this week.

National Wages and Productivity Commission (NWPC) deputy executive director Patricia Hornilla said the wage board in Metro manila is deliberating in the pending wage board petition and is expected to come out with a decision next week.

The salary increase is for Metro Manila workers only and only for workers who receive a minimum salary.

NWPC officials made the announcement after President Arroyo ordered all the 17 Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Boards to hasten the process of resolving pending wage petitions.

Arroyo said the workers, particularly the minimum wage earners, should benefit from the country’s improving economy and should therefore get a salary increase.

Workers led by the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines filed a formal wage petition seeking a P75 across-the-board increase for workers in Metro Manila.

Employers, however, are against any wage hike, arguing that they are just recovering from the global financial crisis.

But Labor Secretary Marianito Roque said the wage board would try to find a common ground between the opposing positions of the employers and workers.
