The principal of a public school in a province in northern Luzon allegedly asked newly-hired teachers to pay P50,000 each.
The Alliance of Concerned Teachers once again picketed in front of the Commission of Elections (Comelec) last Thursday as thousands of teachers and support staff who served last elections have still not received their honoraria. The teachers’ group denounced the commission’s failure to act on the delayed compensation of teachers who served as board of election inspectors (BEI) and support staff last May 13.

“Instead of heeding the just demands of state workers for adequate remuneration and tighter price controls, Aquino targets public servants, whose basic take-home pay cannot them home.”– ACT
