[Statement] On the Teachers’ Sit-Down Strike -TDC

On the Teachers’ Sit-Down Strike 

“We support any action intended to push for a better compensation package for public school teachers. An increase in teachers’ salaries, in any amount would mean that the government officially recognizes its failure to provide a decent and dignified living for its maestras and maestros. Thus, we are one with our brothers and sisters in Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) in calling for an immediate increase in our salaries and we challenge President Aquino and our Senators to include this in the 2015 budget and not to prolong the 4-year disregard to the welfare of the teachers. The P10, 000 pay increase demand has legal and moral bases.”
