Prov’l capitol employees to receive P22,500 additional bonus

By Provincial Media Relations Center

TACLOBAN CITY  –  Employees of the Leyte provincial government will receive higher additional cash gifts this Christmas in the amount of P22,500.

Announcement of the amount for the extra cash gift was the most awaited part during the Provincial Christmas Party for the more than 2,000 capitol employees.

Leyte Governor Carlos Jericho Petilla made the announcement himself and provided too a breakdown of the total P22, 500 to be received by regular and casual employees.

The provincial government have allotted P5,000 plain bonus for each of the around 2,000 employees, another P5,000 under the Productivity Enhancement Incentive (PEI) and another P12,500 under the collective negotiation agreement or (CNA) making the bonus P22,500 in all.

Job-order employees would also receive P5,000 as cash incentive this December.

Gov. Petilla said the P5,000 plain bonus and P5,000 PEI combined can be doubled the amount under the “Double-your-money Program” of the provincial government wherein the amount, if not taken or collected this time, would double in May next year that could be intended to shoulder school tuition fees of children.

Employees can also opt to have the amount enrolled in the “Triple-your-money Program” wherein the P10,000, if not immediately taken now, would grow three-fold in case the employee gets sick or encounters any emergency be it related to health or properties.

Gov. Petilla otherwise discouraged the employees from selling their bonuses for them to have extra budget to be spent during the holiday celebration.

The provincial government has allotted at least P50 million for this extra cash gift this year.

State workers of the capitol expect to receive the amount before December 24.
