Pag-IBIG Fund is most trusted GOCC in 2021 Philippine Trust Index

UNTV News   •   December 1, 2021

 

MANILA, Philippines — Pag-IBIG Fund is the most-trusted government-run corporation according to a nationwide trust survey of key institutions in the Philippines.

This is according to the 2021 Philippine Trust Index (PTI), a nationwide survey by the EON Group that cuts across backgrounds to measure Filipinos’ trust in the government, the business sector, the media, non-governmental organizations, the Church, and the academe.

“We are truly honored to be included in the list of most trusted government agencies. The latest results of the Philippine Trust Index and our 9th straight unmodified opinion from COA show that we have fulfilled our duties during the pandemic while still maintaining the highest standards of transparency and integrity in our work. This is aligned with President Duterte’s vision of clean government with heart for service,” said Secretary Eduardo D. del Rosario, who heads the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) and the 11-member Pag-IBIG Fund Board of Trustees.

The 2021 PTI noted that “in terms of government agencies, departments that got the highest trust are those whose functions require them to remain engaged with the public, even during the pandemic such as online learning, finance regulation, loan assistance and aid distribution.”

The Department of Education earned the highest trust rating of 91% followed by Pag-IBIG Fund at 89% – the highest among GOCCs on the list.

“On behalf of all Lingkod Pag-IBIG, thank you for your trust, our dear members! As you know, we never stopped providing service even during the lockdown and community quarantines. Instead, we improved our digital assets so you can continue transacting with us online,” Pag-IBIG Fund Chief Executive Officer Acmad Rizaldy P. Moti said.

“We have proven that during this health crisis, you can always count on our Lingkod Pag-IBIG brand of service. And, while we have previously received awards and recognition, we are even more grateful that it is the public itself, the people we serve, that ranked us as the most trustworthy GOCC in the country for 2021,” he added.

Labor group pushes for P710 wage hike for Metro Manila workers

Maris Federez   •   April 29, 2019

A labor group has filed a petition before the National Capital Region Wage Board seeking a 710-peso wage increase for Metro Manila workers.

The Associated Labor Union-Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (ALU-TUCP) said the petition, if approved, will guarantee a minimum wage of P1245 for NCR private sector workers from the former P537.

“Hindi pwedeng noodles tapos dadamihan ng tubig tapos sardinas isang can dadamihan natin ng tubig. Para dumami para sa lima na miyembro ng pamilya. Ang sinasabi namin dito anong pagkain ng pamilya ang tama, sapat at nakakapagpalusog, [Living on a pack of noodles or a can of sardines added with plenty of water for a family of five is not acceptable. What we are pointing out here is the right, sufficient and healthy food for a family],” stressed Eva Arcos, the national vice president for education and information of the Associated Labor Union.

Luis Manuel Corral, the vice president of the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines, also said, “nakikita namin na ang [we notice that the] inflation numbers at [and the] GDP data sometimes don’t relate to the reality of worker’s needs on the ground.”

The group based their petition on the study conducted by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute and the Ateneo Policy Center that stated that a family of four must have a budget of P734 for food per day, while a family of five must allocate a budget of P917 for their whole day’s food consumption.

The Employers Confederation of the Philippines, however, contradicted the petition saying it’s only been a year since the Wage Board has approved a salary increase for private workers.

The group is confident that the board will not approve the petition.

In November last year, the Wage Board approved a 25-peso salary increase for Metro Manila workers. – Maris Federez (with reports from Mai Bermudez)

Petition seeking wage increase for gov’t workers filed at SC

 House Majority Leader Rolando Andaya Jr files a petition before the Supreme Court seeking to compel Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno to implement the fourth tranche of salary increase for government workers.

MANILA, Philippines – House Majority Leader Rolando Andaya Jr. filed a petition at the Supreme Court (SC) on Monday (January 14) asking the high tribunal to order Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno to implement the fourth tranche of salary increase for government workers.

“Huwag niyang gagawing dahilan ang reenacted budget dahil mayroon namang mga alituntunin na nakapaloob sa kaniyang departamento na para ibigay ito,” Andaya said.

“Nakakahiya naman na iyong bayad sa daang bilyong utang natin nababayaran natin kahit walang bagong budget. Ito pa kayang katiting lang,” he added.

According to Andaya, the P40 billion needed fund can be spliced from the P75 billion miscellaneous personnel benefits fund (MPBF).

Meanwhile, Diokno welcomed Andaya’s petition.

He said the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) is preparing its comments on the filed petition.

However, Diokno insisted that the reason for the delay in the salary increase was mainly because of the delays in the passage of the 2019 national budget.

“We welcome the petition of mandamus filed by Rep. Andaya at the Supreme Court, so that this issue will be settled once and for all,” Diokno said.

“Mayroon pong tinatawag na diskresyon o constitutional prerogative ang Kongreso kung kailan niya ipapasa ang budget. Hindi po iyan sa dikta ni Sec. Diokno pero siya meron siyang legal duty. Wala siyang diskresyon,” Andaya argued. — Marje Pelayo (with reports from Mai Bermudez)
