More than P10k across-the-board pay hike in the proposed SSL V

This bill seeks to improve the purchasing power of approximately 1.4 million civil servants1 in the country that was eroded by inflation by providing an increase in the salary of government officials and employees.

It also aims to attract and retain competent and committed civil servants and increase productivity among the public sector workers.

By virtue of Executive Order No. 201, the national government implemented the salary adjustments and additional benefits for government employees which was further amended by Executive Order No. 76 dated March 15, 2019. The modified Salary Schedule was implemented in four tranches from January 1, 2016 to April 1, 2019. However, the adjusted salary is deemed unfair and inadequate by most government personnel especially those under Salary Grades 1 to 16 which comprise about 84 percent of the government workforce.

This proposal will put more money in government employees' pockets and will increase disposable income, boost consumer spending, and in turn would stimulate the economy and help generate more revenues.

This bill mandates the implementation of salary increases for government officials and employees in accordance with salary schedules for three (3) tranches. The salary schedules shall be implemented on January 1, 2020 and every January 1 thereafter until the final tranche in 2022.

The salary increase is equivalent to an accross the board annual ten percent increase for three (3) years plus an additional total of Ten Thousand Pesos (P10,000) in the basic monthly salary spread in three (3) years.

With this bill, the government would alleviate the living conditions of the 1.4 million public servants. Consequently, the much-needed relief that this measure offers will further motivate government personnel and invigorate public service.

With the foregoing considered, immediate passage of this bill is earnestly sought.
