Wage hike freeze ok’d in
Yolanda-hit WV areas

Members of the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board yesterday agreed to a moratorium on the recent P10 wage hike in Western Visayas, only in areas devastated by super typhoon “Yolanda”, Labor Regional Director Ponciano Ligutom said.

The identification of the affected areas will need a certification from the Office of Civil Defense and local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Councils, he said.

The moratorium will be for six months and subject to review before it ends to determine whether an extension is needed, he said.moremoremore
