Benepisyo ng mga guro, sinigurong ipagkakaloob
Upang matiyak na matatanggap ng mga guro ang kanilang sahod at iba pang benepisyo, binuo ni Education Secretary Armin Luistro ang isang task force na mangangasiwa sa reklamo at iba pang pangangailangan ng mga una.
Itinalaga na rin ni Secretary Luistro si Undersecretary for Finance Francisco Varela na mamamahala sa Task Force on Welfare and Benefit Package (TFWBP), at katuwang nito bilang vice chairman si Region 12 Director Isabelita Borres.
“In order to improve the delivery of services and to address better the welfare and benefits package for the DepEd teaching and non-teaching employees, the task force will conduct a study on a comprehensive welfare and benefit for DepEd officials, teachers and administrative support staff,” pahayag ni Sec. Luistro.
“The task force shall review the existing welfare and benefits package available to DepEd teaching and non-teaching employees and shall come with new packages relevant to their emerging needs, including the possibility of providing health insurance coverage,” dugtong ng kalihim.
Nabatid na humigit-kumulang sa kalahating milyon ang mga elementary at high school teachers.
Naunang hiniling ng Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) at Teachers Dignity Coalition (TDC) na itaas ang sahod at benepisyo ng mga guro gaya ng medical insurance at hazard pay
