The mechanics are still the same as the previous SSL. What I would like to happen is to give the highest increase to the lowest salary grade, the amount decreasing as it goes up to the highest salary grade, so that the difference between the lowest and highest salaries will decrease.
Sana ACROSS THE BOARD ang increase para lahat happy…Kawawa ang may maliliit lang na salary grades dahil kaunti lang din usad sa sweldo nila samantala ang may matataas na salary grades ay lumulubo ang sahod nila…
This is a very good help to the civilian employees specially we the teachers. Thank you very much and ma u hay to those who worked for this SSL V
may i know if JO’s are covered by SSL also are the salary grades according to the equivalent position of the JO? in my case my appointment letters says Planning officer 4 that is a SG 22 position, i started 2017 but pay remains the same since and far from the one indicated in the SSL table even in terms of the first tranche. just wanted to clarify. thank you.
this is a good news to all government employees.i hope that those in lower positions be considered to have a significant increase in their salaries. there is a big discrepancies in the implementation of previous salary standardization in terms of increase in salaries for lower level and higher level positions. thank you
kasali rin po ng adjusting salary ang minimum salary rate personnel po?
