·1 min read

THREE companies in Central Visayas have sent applications for exemption from the P31 increase in wage for minimum workers in the region.

The Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB)-Central Visayas said they received the three applications, which include two from corporations based in Cebu but with branches in the cities of Mandaue, Lapu-Lapu and other areas in the province.

Lawyer Evita Mendoza-Balane, officer-in-charge (OIC) board secretary of RTWPB-Central Visayas, said the first company to file the application is based in Lapu-Lapu City.

She said the wage board has yet to issue a resolution on whether the application is approved or rejected.

The RTWPB 7 is giving employers in the region until August 12 of this year to file for wage hike exemption.
