Qualified Capitol employees will be receiving up to P25,000 each before Christmas day after the Provincial Board (PB) approved a supplemental budget on Friday for yearend incentives.
According to Board Member Tomas Abapo Jr., the allocation which was added to the provinceâ€™s 2016 Annual Investment Plan reached a total of P37,350,000.
The P25,000 is part of the employeesâ€™ collective negotiations agreement (CAN).
On top of the CNA incentive, the more than 1,200 regular Capitol employees will also be receiving P5,000 each from the P8.1-million performance enhancement incentive (PEI) and P5,000 as cash gift.
However, contract workers of the provincial government have not been allocated funds for bonuses, according to Abapo.
â€œCapitol workers under contract are not entitled any of those bonuses since they do not have an employer-empleyee relationship,â€ he said. (Rey Tutas)
