President Benigno S. Aquino III announced the early implementation of the Salary Standardization Law 3 (SSL 3) for government workers during his visit to Bongabong in Oriental Mindoro for the birthday celebration of Governor Alfonso Umali.
The implementation of SSL 3 is moved to June, a month ahead of the original schedule. According to the President, this is his surprise for government employees as the nation celebrates Labor Day on May 1. He said that he has also been preparing for possible questions that may be raised by labor leaders in their meeting in Malacañang on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, President Aquino said that he will discuss and work with the Department of Energy to address and solve the electricity problem in some municipalities in Oriental Mindoro, including the municipality of Bongabong.
President Aquino also watched the harvesting of king crabs and bangus fish at a farm also in Bongabong.
