More Pasig City Hall employees who have been working as contractuals for more than two decades received regular status, according to Mayor Vico Sotto.

Sotto said there were now 163 City Hall employees who have been given regular positions since January, after 109 contractual employees of the city hall were regularized recently.

According to Sotto, the decision to regularize the employees was “not tainted with politics.”

He said only their qualifications and their track record were considered for their regularization.

“Ang bawat isa sa 163 na ito, mahigit 20 na taon nang contractual sa City Hall (Each of these 163 employees have been working in city hall as contractual employees for more than 20 years),” the mayor said in a social media post Monday.

“Pinapatay natin ang palakasan o ‘patronage’ sa pamahalaan (We are putting an end to the ‘patronage’ system in city government),” he said.

Last month, over 50 Pasig City Hall contractual employees were regularized, including an employee who had been working as a contractual for over four decades.
