TUCP Favors House Act Increasing Pay For Night Workers

Date Posted: Feb 7, 2014

The House Bill 656 otherwise known as “Night Workers’ Additional Compensation Act of 2013” is introduced by House Representative Ma. Victoria Sy-Alvarado. This is an act seeking for an increase in the night shift differential rate currently pegged at 10 percent to 15 percent over and above the regular wage and changing of the time window from between 10 p.m. And 6 a.m. to between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m.


In connection with this, the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP) expresses its inclination towards the act aiming to revise the provision of Article 86 of the Labor Code of the Philippines. “We are in favor of increasing night shift differentials of workers by 5% because it will somehow help night shift workers manage with medical expenses out of sickness arising from their stressful and not so ordinary work schedule,” said Associated Labor Unions-TUCP executive vice president Gerard Seno.


He further stated, “Of course, the increase will boost workers’ morale resulting to an increased productivity thereby benefiting the company at the same time improve employees’ purchasing power stimulating economic activity.”


Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP) or Katipunan ng Manggagawang Pilipino Party List is a confederation of labor federations in the Philippines with members in all sectors and industries (from agriculture to manufacturing services) and associations from OFWs and other civil society groups.
