"We are one with the DepEd in pursuing the voluntary election service of public school teachers," said Benjo Basas, national chairperson of Teachers' Dignity Coalition.
Basas said it has been a long-time advocacy to liberate teachers from compulsory poll duties that resulted in countless cases of intimidation, court battles, anxiety , threat to lives and even death.

Benjo Basas, TDC national president, said their monitoring showed that the majority of the 30,000 pre-school teachers nationwide have yet to receive their honorarium, four months after the class opening.
Basas said they expect the same problem to crop up in 2012 as the government has allocated only P1.9 billion for the program.

Benjo Basas, head of the Teachers Dignity Coalition (TDC), maintained that the country is not yet prepared for the full implementation of the K to 12 program.
The TDC, along with other militant groups including the Coalition for K to 12 Suspension, will hold protest rallies in Manila today.
"We are making noise because the government has not considered the condition of the teachers (in the K to 12 program)," Basas said.
Militant groups said around 80,000 teachers are likely to lose their jobs once the K to 12 program has been fully implemented.
Basas said DepEd failed to address the issues facing public schools.

Benjo Basas, national chairman of TDC, explained in the letter that the PBB is a bonus granted by the government to its employees, which the amount ranges from P5,000 to P35,000 depending on the performance of the employees and their agency. He said the PBB for school year 2013-2014 is supposed to be released by October, however, until now, many teachers are still waiting for their PBB like those in schools in Regions 1, 4B, 6, 8, 9, 11, Caraga and ARMM, as of the moment. The letter lamented the fact that those that were able to receive theirs are complaining of outright deductions of supposed taxes. However, the amount differs from one division to another. Basas cited the tax deducted in some schools in Cebu, Nueva Vizcaya and Isabela is 10 percent of their PBB, in Negros Oriental it is higher at 20 percent, while in Tarlac and Pampanga, it is only 8 percent. There are also some cases where teachers paid 25 and 30 percent in taxes. But most of the divisions, especially in NCR and Calabarzon have no deductions. As per existing revenue laws, taxes may only be collected to the amount of bonuses that exceeds P30,000, said Basas in his letter to Henares.
