Members of an alliance of labor groups from Laguna and Batangas provinces held a rally outside the office of the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board here on Wednesday (Feb. 26) calling for new increases in wages in the Calabarzon region.
Members of groups belonging to Workers’ Initiative for Wage Increase (Win for Win), an alliance of Southern Tagalog labor groups, gathered on the national highway at the village of Halang then marched to the wage board office a few meters away.
“It’s about time to have a significant wage increase here in the region because previous increases were just mere pennies,” said Mary Ann Castillo, 49, chair of Win for Win.
