President Benigno Aquino III yesterday approved the grant of P10,000 bonus to each employee of the Department of Labor and Employment as the agency marked its 80th anniversary.
Aquino made the announcement as he lauded the department.
The anniversary bonus will serve as an incentive for a job well done, Aquino told DOLE employees at the Occupational Safety and Health Center in Quezon City.
Aquino said that, of in 152 notices of strike and lockout for 2013, only one took place.
“This is the lowest in DOLE's history. Since 2010, there is a low number of cases of strike. This mirrors the single entry approach of DOLE," he said.
“We are proud that, because of the work of DOLE, there is now a stable industrial peace climate in the country which translates to more investors," Aquino added.*PNA
