Solon wants to give village laborers a set wage.

Cebuano Cebuano English English Filipino Filipino

It’s past time for the government to implement a uniform position categorization and remuneration structure in order to acknowledge the substantial contributions made by barangay (village) authorities, staff, and volunteers.

In order to guarantee that village employees are fairly compensated and afforded benefits, Senator Raffy Tulfo introduced Senate Bill 1696, often known as the Magna Carta for Barangay Officials, Personnel, and Volunteer Workers.

“Ilan ata ang napabalitang nasaktan, nadisgrasya at nagbuwis ng buhay sa tawag ng tungkulin sa mga tanod sa mga tanod. Ilan na rin ang nagbuwis din ng buhay noong panahon ng pandemya sa mga barangay health worker. Because of the actions they took in response to the incident in Covid-19, they were included in the group of people who were attacked, injured, and killed. As a result of COVID-19, a few healthcare professionals also passed away while carrying out their duties),” Tulfo stated in a statement on Friday.

Village employees must meet the minimum and maximum wage requirements, be covered by the Government Service Insurance System, the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, and the Home Development Mutual (Pag-IBIG) Fund, and be eligible for benefits such as hazard allowance, death and burial benefits, among other things, according to the measure.

The bill also attempts to give barangay officers preference when granting civil service eligibility and when making government appointments.

In order for the village and Sangguniang Kabataan (youth) officials to earn not just honoraria but also the salary, hazard pay, and other perks of their fellow government employees, Senator Christopher Go introduced a similar bill in 2019.
