MMDA allows 1,000 traffic enforcers to avail of eary retirement
The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will “refleet” traffic enforcers with the aim of injecting new blood into the agency, according to a report by Daily Tribune.
MMDA chairperson Benhur Abalos said early retirement will be offered to 1,000 traffic enforcers who are mostly senior citizens.
However, he said the agency has the option of hiring the younger relations to replace those who will be retired.
Their children, nephews or any relative may replace them in the position they will be vacating.
The idea of replacing the agency’s retiring senior traffic constables with relations is to prevent affecting the income of the affected families.
Abalos said, work is hard to come at this time, and hiring their relations will mitigate the economic impact of their retirement.
He said he doesn’t want the families of those who will opt for retirement to be affected, as the pandemic is continuing, though it is somewhat being addressed with the arrival of vaccines.
On the other hand, the MMDA chairperson said they need to hire more traffic enforcers because the agency is presently understaffed, with one-fourth of its personnel consisting of senior employees, with most of them on a work from home arrangement due to Covid-19.
Because of this, they need to immediately hire 1,000 traffic enforcers.
He said when he was appointed last January, Abalos said he was surprised to discover there are so many senior citizens in the agency.
MMDA data showed before the hiring of 1,000 new enforcers, the agency had 2,187 traffic enforcers, 25 percent of whom are senior citizens.
