Milestone achievement as Manual Workers Union celebrates


National Amalgamated Local, Central Government and Parastatal Workers Union also known as Manual Workers Union has today achieved a milestone in the just-ended salary negotiations.

After decades of struggling with low paid cadres at the salary scale of A3, the government has agreed to the demands of the union to elevate the salaries to a minimum of P2,500. The lowest-paid member of the union has been going home with a measly wage of about P1,500–P1,600.

In essence, the salary rise for about 4,280 manual workers means a salary rise of about 13.3%.
