THE Progressive Alliance of Capitol Employees (Pace) is asking for additional bonuses for capitol employees.
Pace has sent letters to Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson and members of the provincial board as regards to the additional year bonuses for employees of the provincial government.
Renelo Lastierre, Pace vice president, said Monday, December 2, that the union is asking for the release of its Collective Negotiation Agreement (CNA) bonus, Productivity Enhancement Incentive (PEI) and the Incentive Benefits for Exemplary Service (IBES) as additional bonuses for the employees.
However, Lastierre did not give specific amount on how much they are asking.
Last year, P80,000 additional yearend bonus were given the provincial government employees by the administration of former governor Alfredo Marañon Jr.
We are hoping it will be more than last year but it will depend on the governor, Lastierre said.
“We believe that the provincial government has funds for it and the Lacson administration looks after the welfare of the workers at the Capitol,” he added.
Earlier, Provincial Budget Officer Jose Percival Salado assured that there is available funds for the extra bonus of the Capitol officials and employees which will be sourced from the savings on Personnel Services.
But he explained that the amount could be determined once the payroll for the month of December has been prepared.
“So we will wait until the December payroll has been determined,” Salado added.
Lastierre said all the employees at the Capitol will give their “all out contribution to the realization of the visions of the administration.”
