BACOLOD CITY, (PNA) — The Philippine Councilors League (PCL) is pushing for a two-month terminal compensation from the Government Service Insurance System ( GSIS) upon the completion of their term as councilors.
This was disclosed Thursday by Negros Occidental Board Member Raul Rivera, PCL national vice chairman for Visayas.
Rivera said that aside from the availment of terminal compensation, they are also lobbying for a step increment in their salaries, but the proposal is being opposed by the Department of Budget and Management.
He said these are among the concerns that they may raise with Senator Peter Alan Cayetano, who will be the guest of honor and speaker during the PCL national executive board meeting Friday at the Bacolod Pavillon Hotel.
Rivera said that Cayetano has been supportive of the PCL. The senator donated P1 million for the renovation of the PCL hostel in Las Piñas City.
The PCL-Negros Occidental Chapter is hosting the second day of the convention Friday.
About 2,000 delegates from various cities and municipalities all over the country are attending the three-day PCL assembly here.
