On the teachers and workers union strike at HAU.

Holy Angel University is said to be the largest school in the whole of Central Luzon. The teachers and workers union held a strike last August 15, due to non-compliance by the school that a certain percentage of tuition fee hikes go to salary increases.

On the other hand, the school has claimed that it filed certificates complying with the 70-20-10 percent proceeds.

The Commission on Higher Education has mandated that 70 percent of tuition increase

-----shall be used for the payment of increase in salaries, wages, allowance and other benefits of teaching, nonteaching and other staff.

The 20 percent, it said,

------shall go to the improvement or modernization of buildings, equipment, libraries, laboratories, gymnasium and similar facility and to the payment of other costs of operations.

The remaining 10 percent

------ goes to profit.

I guess one of the parties is lying even if it claims "undeniability of facts." Certificates of compliance for the 70 percent increase in salaries should be signed by the teaching and non-teaching staff! Were they signed?

HAU is a for profit educational institution. There is nothing wrong with this category, and the school has produced illustrious graduates not only from Pampanga but also from the rest of the Philippines!
