The Governance Commission for Government-Owned or -Controlled Corporations (GCG) assured the members of the Alert and Concerned Employees for Better SSS (ACCESS) Union that the implementation of the Compensation and Position Classification System (CPCS) is consistent with the vision of a sound and viable social security system.
“Truly, CPCS is aligned with your vision of a sound and viable social security system, which shall promote social justice and provide meaningful protection to members and their families,” said GCG Head Executive Assistant and Chief of Staff Atty. Remus Romano Reyes at the 2023 ACCESS National Convention and Second Regular Session that was held from 26 to 28 Apr. 2023.
Atty. Reyes emphasized that the Executive Order (EO) No. 150, s. 2021, or the new framework for the CPCS and Index of Occupational Services, Position Titles, and Job Grades for GOCCs (IOS-G), was issued primarily to improve the compensation and standardize the benefits received by GOCC officers and employees.
He said that the EO aims to eliminate any excessive, unauthorized, illegal, or unconscionable allowances, benefits, and incentives through rationalized requirements.
He added that the present approach of GCG under the leadership of Chairperson Justice Alex Quiroz has facilitated better understanding of CPCS among GOCCs.
Earlier, Atty. Reyes called for open communication and collaboration between the GCG and GOCCs to address concerns about the CPCS and Performance Targets of GOCCs.
“Para sa mga GOCCs, handa ang GCG. Mag-usap tayo (To our GOCCs, the GCG is ready to work with you. Let’s talk.),” said Atty. Reyes in another statement in March 2023.
Meanwhile, Atty. Reyes congratulated ACCESS for the success of the National Convention.
“This National Convention shows the strength of the people, the power of labor to continue to strive for better lives of the members of our organization,” said Atty. Reyes.
