BORONGAN CITY, April 17, 2017–Eastern Samar provincial officials and employees will receive the second tranche of the four tranche pay hike.
On April 10, nine members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan voted for the passage of Appropriation Ordinance No. 17-01, series of 2017 which earmarks P10M for the salary adjustment.
Although the funds for the pay hike will only be made available this April, it will cover salaries and wages effective January 1, 2017.
Funds for the salary increase will be drawn from the province’s retained earnings from 2016.
The pay hike is based on the Department of Budget and Management’s Local Budget Circular #113. (Medora NB Quirante / Este News)
