NWPC hit for ‘delayed action’
on new wage order in WV

A labor leader in Negros Occidental slammed the National Wages and Productivity Commission for its alleged “delayed action” on the new wage order for Western Visayas.

The new wage order that was approved on October 22 grants private sector workers in the region a salary increase ranging from P15 to P30.

But for Wennie Sancho, labor representative to the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board-Western Visayas and secretary-general of the General Alliance of Workers Associations, the labor sector was “frustrated” because the NWPC has yet to review the order.
