SAN FERNANDO CITY, Pampanga, Philippines – Six months after a P24 per day wage hike was approved by the government, labor groups are now asking for P90 across the board wage increase in Central Luzon.

Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP) representatives in Central Luzon filed recently the petition in behalf of agricultural and non-agricultural sector workers before the regional office of the Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE).

TUCP said that the salary increase is needed because of the rise of prices of basic goods and services in the region.

DoLE Regional Director Leopoldo de Jesus said his office is considering the petition of TUCP as “urgent” because of a latest statistics that shows an abrupt inflation rate spike in the provinces covering Central Luzon since last March. (Mark Anthony N. Manuel)
