PIA Press Release

Gov't employees welcome passage of standardization law

Tacloban City (June 3) -- Government workers welcome the passage on June 2 of the salary standardization law for state workers and the assurance by the Palace of the availability of funds for its implementation.

The two chambers of Congress passed the measure updating and upgrading the Salary Standardization law which was pushed by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and has been endorsed by various organizations of government workers.

In a media briefing conducted in the afternoon of June 2, Cabinet Secretary Silvestre Bello III gave the assurance that the government has enough funds for the salary standardization that would bring salaries of government employees closer to the levels of those in the private sector.

During the same briefing, 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.

Aside from eliminating the distortions in the present salary structure, the measure also addresses the disparity in salaries between government executives and their counterparts in the private sector.

The Civil Service Commission found that the salaries of senior managers and highly technical personnel in government were 74 percent below their equivalents in the private sector.

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.

Among the main beneficiaries of the upgraded Salary Standardization bill are nurses and teachers who will have a P6,000 increase in their monthly pay at the entry level.

This system integrates personnel and organizational performance and rewards exemplary civil servants or well-performing institutions. (PIA 8) [top]
