No wage hike for Bohol workers yet

Published by rudy Date posted on May 12, 2011

TAGBILARAN CITY, Philippines — Workers in Bohol may have to wait until legislators and concerned agencies finish the comprehensive review of the Labor Code, which must have been obsolete by now.

German Guidaben of the provincial office of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) explained that there has been no single consultation ever conducted in Bohol yet regarding the sought wage increase.

On the queries about the non-compliance of the minimum wage rate by local government units, especially on the rates for casual workers, Guidaben said that DOLE has no jurisdiction over LGUs except those “bodies created by LGUs that are not sanctioned by Congress.”–Angeline Valencia, Philippine Star
