Iligan LGU raises Minimum Wages

Minimum wages of workers in the Iligan City local government has been raised from P306 to P318 per day.

During its regular session last October 6, the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) passed the resolution sponsored by Committee on Labor Chairman Ariel Anghay authorizing the said pay increase.

According to Anghay, the increase of P12 per day is in compliance with the new minimum set by the Regional Wage and Productivity Board for Northern Mindanao last July 3, 2015.

Earlier Acting Mayor Ruderic C. Marzo promised to increase the minimum wages of casual workers in lieu of the rice subsidy proposed earlier.

It was learned that rice subsidy cannot be given to casuals of the local government since they are Job Order workers with no employer-employee relations with the local government.
