PIA Press Release

CSC, DBM push for passage of wage bill for gov't employees

Tacloban City (October 12) -- Secretary Rolando Andaya Jr. of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) revealed that the Civil Service Commission (CSC) and DBM are pushing for the passage of a new wage bill for government employees.

The CSC and DBM, Sec. Andaya said, is set to introduce and lead efforts to drumbeat support for the passage of the proposed Wage Bill, which designs a compensation and benefits program for all state workers.

Secretary Andaya who was in Tacloban yesterday, made the revelation during the Press Conference conducted by PIA for the launching of the PX Commissary in Region 8.

He said that he is hoping that the new wage bill will be passed this year and that it will be effective starting next year and fully implemented after four years or in 2010. With the passage of the Wage Bill comes the standardization of salaries in the government agencies. From the salary grades which total to thirty three (33), there will only be twenty two (22) salary grades, Secretary Andaya said.

It could be recalled that the government employees have not been given an increase in their compensation for the past several years. They have only been given non-wage benefits like the PX Commissary where government employees will be able to avail of basic commodities at a cheaper price.

The last financial incentive is the granting of P3,000. 00 additional allowance for the government employees.

Secretary Andaya's revelation comes as good news for the workers in government. Some government employees expressed optimism that this will be passed in Congress.

Others opined that the government employees all over the country must lobby with their respective congressmen so that they will vote favorably for the passage of the administration bill. (PIA 8) [top]
