Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson and the Progressive Alliance of Capitol Employees (PACE) president Renelo Lastierre signed a three-year Collective Negotiation Agreement (CNA) this afternoon, December 3, that guarantees incentives for the 3,200 Capitol employees this December.
“By signing the Collective Negotiation Agreement, all Capitol employees, both management and rank and file, will receive CNA incentives, in recognition of their efforts and accomplishing performance targets,” Lacson said.
The governor has committed to give the maximum incentive allowed of P25,000 depending on the availability of savings, Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz said.
Diaz said they are now computing the savings of the provincial government so the incentives can be given as soon as possible.
“We believe that Gov. Lacson will reward the efforts of the provincial government employees for working with him in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic,” Lastierre said.
The Negros Occidental Sangguniang Panlalawigan last week authorized Lacson to sign the CNA.
Lastierre said they are also continuing to lobby for the release of the extra bonus for all employees.
It can only be availed of through the Incentive Benefits for Exemplary Services awards given to a local government unit.
In 2019, the Capitol employees received extra bonuses of P60,000 each.*
