2nd tranche of wage increase in Caraga to take effect on May 1

Butuan City – The Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB) Caraga announced the 2nd second tranche of the new wage increase in Caraga that will take effect on May 1, during the Labor Day Press Conference on April 22 in Butuan City.

RTWPB Board Secretary Earl D. dela Victoria, member of the Regional Coordinating Committee of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Caraga said, “Starting May 1, 2024, the minimum wage of Caraga is P385 in accordance to Wage Order No. 18, which took effect on January 1, 2024. It initially provided an increase of P20 bringing the minimum wage in Caraga to P370.”

“The wage order also provided for a second tranche of the new wage increase amounting to P15 effective May 1, 2024. Therefore, on May 1 which is also Labor Day, the new minimum wage of Caraga region will be P385,” the board secretary added.

He further gave clarifications to the media that the increase of the minimum wage in the region is a result of the series of consultations conducted by the wage board stating, “The decision to increase the minimum wage and the corresponding amount of increase is not solely the decision of the wage board. Series of consultations and public hearings were conducted in the different provinces of the region attended by representatives of both the labor and management sectors.”

The Labor Day Press Conference was attended by government communicators and 24 media partners who would help DOLE and its Regional Coordinating Committee to communicate and inform the public on its activities during the celebration of the 122nd Labor Day, as well as to announce the upcoming minimum wage increase.
