Saranggani representative Manny Pacquiao is one of the co-authors of House Bill 2142 or “The Public School Teachers Salary Upgrading Act” that was filed by ACT Teachers Partylist Rep. Antonio Tinio.


HB 2142 aims to upgrade the salaries of public school teachers from Salary Grade 11 to Salary Grade 15. Currently, the entry-level pay for public school teachers is P15,649 per month. The bill will raise their minimum pay to P24,887 per month. Public school teachers in elementary and secondary schools, including those in vocational and technical schools and state universities and colleges, whether nationally or locally funded, are covered by the bill.


“We are pleased that Rep Pacquiao accepted our invitation to co-author the bill. It only shows that Rep. Pacquiao is one with the fight for our teachers welfare.” Rep. Tinio said.


“Aside from the support that he has given, Rep. Pacquaio was very receptive of the Bill, he understands the plight of our teachers and the need for an upgrade in their salaries,” Rep Tinio ended.#
