THE Philippine Councilors League (PCL) is pushing for the availment of a two-month terminal compensation from the Government Service Insurance System upon completion of their term as councilors.
This was bared on Thursday by PCL-Visayas national vice chairman Raul Rivera.
Rivera also said that aside from availment of terminal compensation, they are also lobbying for a step increment which unfortunately being opposed by the Department of Budget and Management.
He said these are among the concerns they may raised to Senator Peter Alan Cayetano, who will be the guest of honor and speaker of PCL national executive officers and national board meeting Friday at Pavillon Hotel in Bacolod City.
Cayetano, Rivera said, has been supportive to PCL and in fact he donated P1 million for the renovation of PCL hostel at Las Piñas in Metro Manila, among others.
PCL members need not to worry of a place to stay if they are in Manila, as they can avail of PCL hostel facilities and even the service vehicle, he added.
The PCL-Negros Occidental chapter headed by Rivera will host the second day of its activity today, while the PCL-Bacolod chapter hosted the activity yesterday, which included the CLLEP (Continuing Local Legislative Education Program) meeting, where councilors from all over the country shared “best practices” in their respective localities, Rivera said.
PCL records show that about 2000 delegates from various cities and municipalities yesterday arrived in Bacolod City, to attend its national board meeting.
