After the Provincial Treasurer’s Office recently 14th month bonuses for Negros Occidental provincial government employees, the Progressive Alliance of Capitol Employees (PACE) said they are hoping for an additional bonus through the Collective Negotiation Agreement (CNA).
In a radio interview over the weekend, PACE President Venchito Magalona said CNA incentives amounts to P25,000.
However, acting Provincial Administrator, Dr. Lucille Gelvolea, earlier said it is unclear if the said cash incentive or other awards would be disbursed as they must ensure compliance with Department of Budget and Management (DBM) regulations.
Magalona said he hopes the union will be informed of the rules in advance./DGB, WDJ
