The Department of Labor and Employment Cavite Provincial Office (DOLE CPO) in coordination with the 5th legislative district of Cavite conducted a ceremonial release and payment of salaries to the beneficiaries of emergency employment assistance under the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD).

The three-day ceremony was spearheaded by Officer in Charge (OIC) Assistant Regional Director (ARD) of DOLE – CALABARZON Atty. Nepomuceno A. Leaño II and DOLE CPO – OIC Engr. Joseph P. Gacosta. The ceremony took place over March 25, 29 and April 1 and was held at the covered court of Hon. Marciano Mapanoo Park in Carmona, Cavite. The first and second batches consist of five hundred ten (510) and four hundred thirty-three (433) beneficiaries respectively all coming from the municipalities of Carmona and Silang, while the third batch consists of nine hundred forty-eight (948) beneficiaries which came from the municipality of General Mariano Alvarez (GMA).

 


By virtue of the TUPAD program, DOLE CPO was able to award and provide emergency employment to one thousand eight hundred ninety-one (1,891) beneficiaries from the municipalities of Carmona, Silang, and GMA. Under the program, workers were required to render 10 days of work through social and economic community project. Prior to actual engagement in employment, the beneficiaries are provided with basic orientation, TUPAD ID and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the form of T-shirt and hat. The workers are paid Php400.00 per day based on the highest prevailing minimum wage in CALABARZON amounting to Php4,00.00 for each beneficiary.

During the ceremony, DOLE CPO – OIC Engr. Gacosta reminded the beneficiaries that the Php4,00.00 salary should be received in full and without any deductions. He also said that the Department implements TUPAD yearly, however, it should only be availed once by a beneficiary so as to accommodate other beneficiaries.

 



OIC-ARD Atty. Leaño also echoed the same sentiment and made a remark that in order to facilitate a prompt payout, the Department brought its full force. Lastly, OIC - ARD Atty. Leaño added that though TUPAD is a project of DOLE, it is only made possible through the help and leadership of the local municipality leaders and the Department.
