The Trade Union Congress of the Philippines is calling for an increase in the minimum wage of workers in the National Capital Region.

The group on Thursday filed a petition before the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Boar-NCR seeking for a P320 across-the-board minimum wage increase.

If approved, the daily minimum wage in NCR will be adjusted to P832.

The current daily minimum wage in the region, which encompasses Metro Manila and nearby provinces, is P512.

TUCP assistant general secretary Vicente Camilon Jr. is optimistic that the petition will be approved.
