State workers can expect salary increases with approval of 2009 budget

Negros Occidental (29 August) -- Government workers can expect increases in their salary with the P20 billion earmarked for the salary standardization included in the proposed P1.4 trillion 2009 budget now in congress.

According to Budget Secretary Rolando Andaya Jr., the P20 billion budget for salary standardization is among the significant allocations lined up in the 2009 budget.

The proposed P1.4 trillion budget for 2009, which is about 15 percent higher than this year's budget, was signed by President Gloria Arroyo in the weekend and was endorsed to the congress for approval.

Meanwhile, House Speaker Prospero Nograles expressed support to the Joint Resolution on Salary Standardization Law III presented by Andaya who said that the increases in the salary of government workers will not only help them keep up with the rising cost of basic commodities and services but it will also rationalize the compensation system in the government service.

Salary increases for state workers has been given priority by the Arroyo administration and was implemented since 2006. Starting July of this year, a 10 percent increase over the basic monthly salaries was also implemented under Executive Order 719.

Malacaņang hopes the proposed 2009 budget will be approved by Congress on December. (PIA/EAD) [top]
