According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer (posted yesterday night), citing reports from the Alliance of Concerned Teachers, Cebu and Davao teachers were told by their superiors to pay for the cash cards and wait for almost two months before they can get their honorarium.

Per the PDI report, “The Department of Education (DepEd) said it made an arrangement with the Commission on Elections (Comelec) so that the teachers could get their election honoraria and allowances on time through their Landbank payroll accounts or through cash cards that would be mailed to them a few days before the elections.”

Kindly report to ACT TEACHERS (election hotlines: 09295748870 and 09273289701) if your Division employs a similar practice where poll workers are asked to open and pay for new cash cards and are expecting delayed poll service honorarium. Thank you.
