Table 11: UPAU Breakdown by Office/Unit

The following offices/units have a moderate to high concentration of women-members over men: Accounting Office, Asian Center, CSWCD, the Department of English and Comparative Literature, College of Mass Communication, HRDO, Health Service, Law Complex, Library, OUR, School of Economics, SURP, and UP Integrated School.

The following offices/units, however, have a moderate to high concentration of men-members over women: Campus Maintenance Office (with 80 men as against 3 women), College of Music, College of Public Administration, College of Science (except for the Math Department), DCMT, Institute of Biology, NIGS, NSRI, Off Campus Architecture, Police (21 men and 4 women), and the University Food Service (21 men and 9 women).

No information is available on the members’ ages, civil status, educational attainment, positions held at the university, or union committee membership.

Salary Grade and Monthly Income: For all salary ranges, the women outnumber the men, except in the P10,000 and below range, where men outnumber the women by nearly 20%. The highest reflected salary falling within the P95,000-P100,000 range is that of a woman. For the second highest, P30,000-P35,000, 14 women (1.6% of  union members) hold salaries within this range, as against only 4 male (0.45%). In the P25,000-P30,000 range, 18 women (2.04%) fall within as compared to 16 men (1.81%). 43 women (4.76%) and 21 men (2.38%) belong to the P20,000-25,000 range. 110 women (12.47%) as against 37 men (4.20%) fall within the P15,000-P20,000 salary range, and for the P10,001-P15,000 range, 146 women (16.55%) and 130 men (14.72%) belong to this level.

If correlated with the survey data, the higher number of women holding higher salaries is consistent with the findings that more women have MS/MA and BS/BA degrees as compared to the men. However, data on members’ educational attainment must be gathered for this correlation to be considered conclusive.

RECOMMENDATIONS

on Linking Gender Disaggregated Data with the Women’s Agenda, Empowerment and Increased Participation

It is recommended that more comprehensive data on members be gathered and that this be subject to gender disaggregation. Data should be gathered primarily through membership forms and/or surveys, documentation of small and large focus group discussions as well as small group and general membership fora. Given the reasons stated below, it is our view that the information generated from the gender disaggregated data will make a significant impact on the Union’s initiative of putting the women’s agenda on the table, maximizing the union’s human resources in its continuing struggle and fight for the rights of workers and Filipinos, and encouraging more women’s, as well as men’s, participation in community and national issues.

A.   Detailed Membership Profiles

  • Will present a more comprehensive profile and perspective of the membership;
  • Will aid in discovering assumptions and implications of the concentration of union members in units/offices, areas, salary, and the like;
  • Will provide a clearer understanding of the patterns in men’s and women’s work and personal circumstances;
  • Will show the configuration of factors encouraging and hindering participation of union members;
  • Will reveal the self-evident “gender truths” in operation in their work and personal lives, particularly regarding situations and contributions of women (usually invisible, unaccounted for, undervalued or unpaid);

B. Talents, Areas of Knowledge and Expertise, Affiliations and Positions

  • Will help identify/determine the potential roles members can play and contributions they can make as individuals and as a part of gendered groups;
  • Will guide in organizing members and resources to be ready for action or to take action in a range of activities;

C. Perspective Sharing and Focus on Gender Issues

  • Will necessitate an evaluation of the gendered implications of the union’s current structures, programs, issues, and concerns
  • Will rationalize gender balance in priority setting, decision making, devising of union policies and programs and the like;
  • Will prompt examination of already existing definitions, classifications, and concepts of gender;
  • Will frame members’ redefinitions and re-conceptualizations of gender and recalibration of their gender lens;

The results of A, B and C will lead and contribute to:

D. Egalitarian Formulation of Union Policies, Programs, Positions on Issues

  • Will contour the conceptualization and development of workshops/fora/others, the choice of approaches and nature of activities;
  • Will affect decision-making of union in prioritizing issues, concerns, and needs
  • Will contribute to awareness and understanding the different worlds that women and men live in (access to education and work, health, personal security, leisure time)
  • Will frame the union’s review of policies and establishment of plans and programs to increase the proportion of women in the design, development and implementation of policies and programs;

E. Egalitarian Consciousness-Raising Campaigns and the Empowerment of Women

  • Will prioritize information, awareness and consciousness-raising campaigns with regard to gender and why and how the roles, issues, needs and contributions of women in society are important but nevertheless undervalued, usually unpaid, invisible, and subject to unequal measurement of worth;
  • Will imbue its constituents with the gender sensitivity with which to understand and view gender concepts, needs and issues;
  • Will put members in a better position to analyze the assumptions and implications at work in their particular circumstances as well as in others’ situations;
  • Will goad members to willingly and voluntarily involve themselves in their capacities as committee members and officers in designing, implementing and monitoring effective, efficient and mutually reinforcing gender-sensitive and gender responsive policies and programs;

F. Ownership and Participation in Union, Community and National and International Issues

  • Will enable officers and core group members to devise ways to best enhance participation (schedules of meetings, nature of activities, strategies for relief of members from childcare/multiple burden responsibilities in order to attend meetings and participate in activities, time of safe travel, bonding, and the like)
  • Will institutionalize (or at least turn into a regular practice) perspective sharing so that members, in their capacities as officers and committee members, can make appropriate gender-sensitive and gender-responsive decisions.

The union espouses the active participation not only in personal and work issues but also in that of the community and the nation. Providing members the tools and strategies to see beyond their own personal circumstances and through education, awareness and consciousness-raising on these as well as on gender and women’s situations will hopefully help them begin to understand that personal problems, issues and concepts and issues and their causes, effects, are linked to national and international issues and problems. Hopefully too this will spark in the constituents the motivation, initiative, and commitment to action who not only want to become important contributors to national development but also recognize that fostering the empowerment and advancement of women is key in the achievement of these goals.
