ABS-CBNNews.com reports that "public school teachers who served as Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) in the May 13 midterm elections hope they can get their pay for their poll duties soon."

 

However, according to the report, "Teachers’ Dignity Coalition spokesperson Olivia de Guzman said they still remain clueless about their election pay." The report quoted De Guzman, who said, "Noong unang mga dialogue namin sa COMELEC (Commission on Elections), sabi nila before elections, ’Matatanggap n’yo na ang inyong honorarium.’ Wala naman (In our initial dialogues with the COMELEC, we were told before the elections, ’You’ll get your honorarium.’ We got nothing)."

 

The report noted: "De Guzman said that up to the last moment, they urged the government to increase their election duty pay from ₱3,000 to ₱5,000. The teachers said the Comelec can afford the increase since they were given a ₱4.14-billion budget for the 2013 elections. But they were only granted P4,000 each, including ₱3,000 honorarium; ₱500 transportation allowance, and ₱500 for testing and sealing the voting machines."
