BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya – Provincial employees and officials here have received their Christmas benefits close to Php 50,000.00 each.
The Christmas perks include Php 25,000 Collective Negotiation Agreement(CNA) for permanent and casual employees while Php 22,500 each was received by those covered by Contract of Services(COS).
“These amounts however are subject to deductions to their respective agencies such as 40 percent for permanent, 30 percent for casual and 10 percent for COS,” said Rachel Magday, a PLGU employee.
Other perks also include Php 18,000 rice allowance and Php 5,000 Performance Enhancement Incentive(PEI).
Magday said the proposed Economic Relief Assistance(ERA) which was earlier proposed by the provincial board had been scrapped due to its negative implications on auditing rules and regulations.
The ERA also provides Php 20,000 assistance to selected national government agencies in the executive and judiciary branches housed within the provincial capitol in Bayombong town. (PNA)
