1,320 TUPAD BENEFICIARIES IN RIZAL UNDERGO ORIENTATION

The Department of Labor and Employment Rizal Provincial Office (DOLE RPO) conducted an orientation to 1,320 informal sector workers on May 17-20, 2021.

In partnership with the Office of Congressman Michael John R. Duavit, 1st District Representative of Rizal, DOLE Rizal employed a total of 1,320 workers from the Municipalities of Angono, Binganonan, Cainta, and Taytay under the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program.

In observance of the existing community quarantine restrictions, DOLE RPO devised a scheduling scheme to lessen the number of beneficiaries confined in one space.

Kristielle Joy C. Maglabe, Labor Employment Officer II, and TUPAD Focal led the weeklong orientation. Before they entered the briefing session, the beneficiaries received their TUPAD uniforms and IDs which they will use during their 10-day emergency employment.

In one of the sessions, Ms. Maglabe reiterated how blessed the beneficiaries are for having this kind of job opportunity.

“Tayo po ay maglilinis sa loob ng apat na oras sa isang araw, so hindi na po ito masama. Kasi po ang prevailing minimum wage dito sa CALABARZON ay P400, at ‘yung P400 na po na ‘yun sa walong oras niya na pagtatrabaho. Apat na oras lang din po ang hihingi ng aming tanggapan dahil sa pandemic, nililimitahan din po ‘yung paglabas ng mga tao,” Ms. Maglabe said.

TUPAD is a short-term emergency employment program of the Department of Labor and Employment for the displaced, underemployed, and seasonal workers. Their employment lasts for at least 10 days and should not exceed 30 days, depending on the project they are working on.
