The Department of Labor and Employment in Western Visayas is still waiting for the list of areas badly hit by super typhoon Yolanda in the region to be covered by the six-month moratorium in the implementation of the P10 wage hike.
Labor Regional Director Ponciano Ligutom said they have asked the Office of Civil Defense and local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Councils for the list, but until yesterday, they have not received it.
Ligutom said the RTWPB will meet again today on the implication of the non-release to the badly-hit areas of super typhoon Yolanda by OCD and DRRMC.
