Comelec employees want raise to "fight temptations"

from NAMFREL Election Monitor Vol.2, No.24
.
In connection with a recent proposal by Bureau of Customs chief Rufino Biazon for a “10-percent to 15-percent” raise in benefits for Customs employees to help them avoid "everyday temptations," a group of Comelec employees similarly want a wage increase. Armando Mallorca, convener of the Comelec Wage Fight Alliance (CWFA), said that a higher pay “may [also] help Comelec employees fight temptations” especially during election period.

The group said that Comelec employees' wages are not at par with those received by workers in other constitutional bodies and government agencies. “Considering the extremely high cost of living nowadays and in light of the fact that the present Salary Standardization Law simply is not enough to tide our families through these very tough times, Comelec employees, too, deserve a just and
appropriate pay,” Mallorca said in a statement.
