LEGAZPI CITY Mar 6 - The Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB)-Bicol has set at P335 the new minimum wage for workers in Region 5 per Wage Order No. RBV-20.

The implementation of the new minimum wage was in response to the result of the public consultation conducted by the RTWPB-Bicol giving emphasis on the impact of Typhoon Tisoy and coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) to the economy and the expected rising of food products and other basic needs, said DOLE-Bicol Director Joel M. Gonzales, chair of the RTWPB in Region 5 in a  press conference held at the Casablanca Convention Center on Friday (Mar 6).

The wage increase in Bicol will be given in two tranches. Gonzales said,  that the first tranche of P10 will be given upon the effectivity of the order 15 days after publication.

The second tranche of P15 will be given effective July 1, 2020 setting the new minimum wage at P335.00 for minimum wage earners.

The old wage is P310 as per Wage Order No. RBV-19.
