Valenzuela passes ordinance to put order and efficiency in aid assistance to needy
The Valenzuela City Council passed an ordinance to protect the welfare of city employees and ensure the delivery of government services during the month-long Luzon’s enhanced community quarantine.
Ordinance No. 676 Series of 2020 otherwise known as the “Alternative Work Arrangement Ordinance,” was passed during the 8th City Council’s 32nd regular session.
The city government’s Contract of Service (COS) and Job Order (JO) employees will be adopting alternative work arrangement which may be considered as work from home or skeletal workforce.
An exception to the “no work, no pay” principle in the course of quarantine period brought by the COVID-19 outbreak, the City Government of Valenzuela maintained a skeletal workforce among its personnel to continue to attend to the crucial needs of its constituents during this time of national emergency.
Salary and wages for workers who will be part of the alternative work arrangement shall be paid for, ascertaining the employees’ means for a living as they assure the delivery of necessary and essential services to the public.
The COS and JO workers are therefore enjoined to observe the guidelines and measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace by strictly observing social distancing, practicing personal hygiene, regular hand washing, and proper coughing and sneezing etiquette.
The ordinance will take effect immediately and retroactive from March 16, 2020 or the date of effectivity of the Enhanced Community Quarantine period. This ensures that COS and JO employees’ welfare is upheld, helping them tide over the month-long quarantine and supply to the needs of their families.
To ensure that unity is maintained, cooperation is encouraged, and peace and order among groups in Valenzuela City is promoted and sustained, Mayor Rex Gatchalian, Task Force on Fraternities and Gangs Intervention and Prevention (TAFFGIP) Action Offi...
