An Open Letter to DBM from the Recognized Unions of the faculty, REPS and administrative staff of the University of the Philippines

Following the Labor Day announcement of President Benigno S. Aquino III, advancing the implementation of salary increases for government workers under the Salary Standardization Law III (SSL III) 3rd Tranche on June 2011, the DBM issued EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 40 entitled “Implementation of the Third Tranche of the Modified Salary Schedule for Civilian Personnel in the Government”. Section 2 of the DBM E.O. No. 40, dated April 29, 2011 states:
SECTION 2. Implementation of the Third Tranche Monthly Salary Schedule for Civilian Personnel of the National Government. The Salary Schedule attached as Annex “A,” which is the third tranche of the modified Salary Schedule provided in item (4)(b) of Joint Resolution No. 4, shall be implemented effective 1 June 2011 for personnel in NGAs, and in GOCCs and GFIs. (underscoring ours)
It is almost the middle of June and until now, we have not received the salary adjustment announced by President Aquino. June expenses are particularly high because of the expenses related to our children’s schooling aside from the continuous increases in the prices of goods and services.
We call on DBM to immediately release the funds allocated for the salary adjustment!
