Negros Occidental provincial administrator, Atty. Rayfrando Diaz, yesterday assured provincial government employees would receive extra bonuses and said officials are currently “collating all awards that won this year both at the regional and national level.”
“These will be our basis on how much we can give to our employees,” he explained.
Earlier, the Progressive Alliance of Capitol Employees (PACE) sent letters seeking additional year-end bonuses for provincial government employees.
PACE Vice President Renelo Lastierre said the union is asking for a Collective Negotiation Agreement (CNA) bonus, Productivity Enhancement Incentive, and Incentive Benefits for Exemplary Service bonuses.
Last year, in addition to 14th-month pay, provincial government employees were granted P55,000 in bonuses, comprised of P50,000 in the form of cash incentive and P5,000 as the CNA bonus, along with an additional P30,000 in various bonuses.
“We are hoping it will be more than last year,” Lastierre said. “The provincial government has funds for it.
Meanwhile, Diaz said Provincial Budget Officer Jose Percival Salado has been ordered to process December payroll early in order to calculate how much can be allocated for bonuses.
He added, Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson will announce how much they will be allocating during the Capitol Christmas party on December 17./DGB, WDJ
