Proposal for a six-hour work for government teachers


Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Camarines Sur Rep. Diosdado Arroyo filed the House Bill 2684 that proposes a shorter working hours for all government teachers. This means, public school teachers will cut their working hours from eight to six hours a day.

The propose bill states:

“Their present work schedule has left them stressed out and exhausted much to the detriment of our students,”

That any work executed beyond a six-hour duty must be given additional compensation or be given at least 25% of the teacher’s regular remuneration.

Furthermore, it also mentions about the exemption of public school teachers from the Civil Service mandated eight-hour work for government workers.
