One hundred fifty-eight workers employed under the Tulong Panghanapbuhay para sa Ating Displaced/ Disadvantaged Workers (TUPAD) Program of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) received Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and TUPAD long-sleeved shirts during their orientation on December 2, 2020, at the Bontoc Municipal Capitol auditorium.

Each TUPAD worker received three pieces of N95 masks, one piece of the face shield, and one TUPAD long-sleeved shirt.

Bontoc Mayor Franklin C. Odsey in his message expressed his appreciation to the DOLE for prioritizing the health and safety of the TUPAD workers especially in this time of the pandemic.

Likewise, the mayor extended his gratitude to DOLE and the Office of Congressman Maximo Dalog, Jr., for extending the program of the government to the grassroots- the community.

Odsey added that while TUPAD workers were only given 15 days each to work, this will be of great help to augment their family’s financial needs.

Wabilyn Lomong-oy, staff from the Office of Congressman Dalog congratulated the TUPAD workers citing that of the hundreds of applicants to avail of the program, they have passed the screening and evaluation process.

Also, she assured of a strong partnership of the Office of the Congressman with the DOLE and the Bontoc Local Government Unit (LGU) in bringing services of the government to the community.

Labor Employment Officer III Marshall Pachingel of the DOLE –Provincial Office remarked that the TUPAD Program is funded by the Office of Congressman Dalog.

Pachingel explained that TUPAD is one component of the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Emergency Program (DILEEP) which provides emergency employment for displaced workers, unemployed, and seasonal workers.

He added that the implementation of the TUPAD Program is through the Bontoc LGU as a DOLE – Accredited co-partner.

In relation to this, Labor and Employment Officer II Jenelyn Caluza from the Bontoc LGU explained that the TUPAD workers will engage in short-term community work to provide them with emergency/ temporary employment for 15 days receiving Php 350 as daily wage.
