Tell it to SunStar: On signing of the SSL 5 Bill

by Teachers Dignity Coalition

We are thankful for the increase in government workers’ pay. However, if the President just adopted the SSL 5, this is far from what we expected.

He promised a P10,000 hike for teachers over and above the SSL when he ran for office in 2015.

This SSL 5 is a generic law that does not recognize our teachers’ worth in the recommended pay scheme in the Magna Carta for Teachers. If it is over, we just appeal for a dialogue with him.
