Wage board hearing pay hike in S. Mindanao

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/24 Jul) — The seven-member Regional Tri-partite Wage and Productivity Board in Southeastern Mindanao has conducted public hearings amid a petition for a P75 across-the-board increase, the RTWPB chair said.

Ponciano Ligutom, RTWPB 11 chair and regional director of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), said they are now proceeding to sector consultations after holding marathon hearings in Digos, Tagum and Davao on July 17 to 19.

Ligutom said on Aug. 19, a month after the last public hearing was conducted, they will release a decision but could not reveal just yet if the 1.6 million workers in the region can expect an increase in the minimum pay.
