PH weathermen celebrate release of benefits
MANILA - The Philippine Weather Employees Association (PWEA) held a thanksgiving lunch today to celebrate the release of their benefits which have been delayed for many months.
PWEA Mon Agustin thanked everybody who lent them support in the campaign.
However, he called on authorities to make changes in the disbursement of their benefits to avoid difficulties in the future. As it stands, the benefits of many government employees are taken from the savings of their own office.
Agustin said this is prone to the whims of people in control of the funds.
PWEA members hope the benefits of government employees will be itemized in the General Appropriations Act in the future.
