CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- Central Luzon’s Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board announced yesterday the granting of a P16 increase in minimum daily wage for workers in the region effective on May 1, Labor Day.

“The Board deemed it best to increase the minimum wage at a reasonable and equitable level in light of the regional poverty threshold level vis-à-vis average wage, along the need to promote performance- based incentive schemes under the Two-Tiered Wage System,” Wage Order No. RBIII-20 said.

The total new minimum wage for the provinces of Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Tarlac, and Zambales will now be P380 for non-agriculture establishments with total assets of P30 million or more, P373 for non-agriculture establishments with total assets of less than P30 million, P350 for agriculture plantation workers, P334 for agriculture non-plantation workers, P369 for retail and service workers with 16 or more employees, and P355 for retail and service workers with less than 16 employees.

In Aurora province, the total new minimum wage is P329 for non-agriculture, P314 for agriculture plantation workers, P302 for agriculture non-plantation workers, and P264 for retail and service workers with less than 16 workers.
