This paper explains that the bureaucracy of the government of the Republic of the Philippines has become bloated with employees, which has led to a number of rationalization policies by the government, such as Executive Order 366, to arrest this upsurge in the number of civil servants. The author points out that one of the research questions is to determine whether the lay-off of tens of thousands of government employees is justified in the sense that the savings of government from rationalization will indeed be delivered to basic social services. The paper concludes that, from the results of the survey and interviews, the rationalization program must be scrapped or deferred because it does not answer the fundamental problems of the fiscal deficit. This paper includes many table and graphs and the survey questionnaire.

From the Paper:

"The democratic space born out of the February 1986 revolution ushered in a new era in the Philippine labor movement. For almost half a century, the Philippines was the only country in Southeast Asia whose government employees did not enjoy full trade union rights or the system of free collective bargaining even as public sector unionism was a well established practice the world over. It is in the backdrop of this democratization process against a culture of repression and a consciousness of the role trade unions will play in the body politic that the Confederation of Independent Unions 'was formed."
