The CNA bonus was supposed to be released to the Capitol employees in the middle of this year. Under the agreement, the employees are supposed to receive the bonus every year for five years.

According to the employees, they received their bonus last year but the bonus for this year was reportedly withheld because there was lack of clear guidelines from the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) on the matter.

The employee said that the DBM has reportedly approved the release of the CNA bonus.

We want to know if the funds intended for the bonus is available, the concerned employee stated.

The Provincial Capitol has more than 2,000 employees who are members of Pace.
