AN ACT INCREASING THE SALARY OF CIVILIAN
GOVERNMENT PERSONNEL AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES

According to the Civil Service Commission, there are a total of 1,728,641 career and non-career civil service personnel as of May 31, 2019. These employees stand to benefit from the passage of this bill, which aims to increase the salaries of civilian government personnel by providing an average increase of 10% to the annual salary of the government employees, to be implemented in three tranches starting from 2020 to 2022. This bill seeks to improve the spending power of ordinary government employees whose spending power has been eroded by inflation, which increased to as high as 6.7% in September and October 2018.


This bill covers all civilian government personnel, including the Executive, Legislative, Judiciary, government-owned and controlled corporations (GOCCs), government financial institutions (GFIs) and local government units (LGUs), except those government institutions that have their own salary structure provided under other laws. In order to ensure that salaries in the public sector remain competitive, this bill also mandates the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and the Civil Service Commission (CSC) to jointly review the Compensation and Position Classification System every three years and develop and recommend to the President a competitive compensation and remuneration system.



The passage of this bill will not only benefit public sector employees but the whole bureaucracy itself since it would increase the competitiveness of the government in attracting and retaining talented employees, as well as increase employee satisfaction thereby increasing employee performance towards a more service-oriented and vigorous public service.

Thus, the immediate passage of this bill is earnestly sought.

SENATOR JOEL VILLANUEVA
