Sakto sa Christmas: Employees of Negros Occidental, Bacolod governments to get CNA
Employees of both Negros Occidental and City of Bacolod governments are set to receive their respective Collective Negotiation Agreement (CNA) bonuses.
Provincial Budget Officer Jose Percival Salado Jr. said as of Friday, December 23, various Capitol departments and offices can already process the payrolls.
Each of about 2,500 employees will receive P8,000 as incentive bonus amounting to P20.32 million.
Salado said the CNA incentive is an annual obligation of the provincial government to its regular and contractual employees as well as elected officials.
The fund will be sourced from the Capitol’s 2016 savings from its travel, communication, and utility budget.
Salado said the employees will receive the CNA incentive because the provincial government has reached 70 percent of its target projects, programs, and activities as of October 31.
The CNA between the provincial government and the Progressive Alliance of Capitol Employees will expire on October 2017.
In Bacolod, more than 1,000 employees of the city government will receive a CNA incentive of PHP3,500 each for a total of P4.715 million.
Councilor Caesar Distrito, chairman of committee on appropriation and finance, said the appropriated amount will be received by regular and co-terminus employees.
The councilor added that the CNA incentive is a bonus for the employees for their excellent performance.
Earlier, the city government regular and co-terminus employees also received their 13th and 14th month pay, P5,000 cash gift, and P5,000 Productivity Enhancement Incentive pay.
