Palace hails passage of gov't pay standardization law as it assures availability of funds for its implementation

Manila (3 June) -- Malacaņang welcomed Tuesday the passage in Congress of the salary standardization law (SSL-3) for state workers as it assured availability of funds for its implementation.

Cabinet Secretary Silvestre Bello III said the government has enough funds for the salary standardization that was pushed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to bring salaries of government employees closer to the levels of those in the private sector.

For his part, Presidential Adviser on Political Affairs Gabriel Claudio said the timely implementation of SSL-3 will help the economy at this time of global economic crisis.

"It will help perk up the economy through spending," Claudio said.

Claudio cited the determination of Congress in passing the salary standardization law and other important legislations such as the extension of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) before their recess on Wednesday, June 3.

Congress has approved Joint Resolution 26, a Malacaņang-certified measure that would upgrade the compensation of low-level employees up to the top positions in government effective July 1.

The salary standardization is expected to benefit the more than 1.5 million government employees by increasing their salaries to be given in four yearly tranches starting in July 1, 2009 until 2013. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
