House Majority Leader Rolando Andaya on Monday underscored the need for the immediate release of the fourth tranche of salary increase for state workers as provided by the Salary Standardization Law.

Holding it hostage is a violation of their rights, Andaya said.

“The increase of the salary and benefits is directly intended for the working force of the government, the common tao who propel the administration’s operations…In the midst of the increase of commodity prices, the petitioners and the government employees should not be deprived of their salary increase which they have already anticipated and relied to defray their daily cost of living,” read the petition for mandamus Andaya filed before the Supreme Court.
