Iriga: Wage Boards to expedite salary hike petitions- DOLE


The labor department on Monday assured the public that its regional wage boards will expedite the deliberation of petitions for wage adjustment to help workers cope with the rising cost of basic goods triggered by the high prices of fuel products.

Executive Director Maria Criselda Sy of the National Wages and Productivity Commission (NWPC) said the heads of the wage boards met last week to discuss the fast-tracking of the review and process of the wage adjustment.

“We have already convened our DOLE Regional Directors and invited resource persons from critical agencies that can provide the wage boards a perspective on what is happening on social economic environment. These inputs given from the national level will then be disseminated on their respective regions,” Sy said.
