DOLE’s P1.6M TUPAD fund benefits 500 more workers in Occidental Mindoro

SAN JOSE, OCCIDENTAL MINDORO – Guided by its mandate to continuously address the current job crisis brought about by COVID-19, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) MIMAROPA Region through its Occidental Mindoro Provincial Office released last 07 August 2020, an amount of P1.6M to the Provincial Government of Occidental Mindoro as an accredited co-partner in the implementation of its Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program.

Representing OIC Regional Director Albert E. Gutib, DOLE Provincial Director Bernardo B. Toriano personally awarded the TUPAD check to Governor Eduardo B. Gadiano. 

 “During these difficult times, we wanted to show that we in the provincial and national governments are one with the plight of those workers who need the most in life. It is our duty to ensure that our constituents are being taken care of especially during this crisis”, said PD Toriano.

The said amount will benefit 500 displaced workers in addition to the 5,765 beneficiaries already provided with emergency employment assistance in the province since April of this year.

The provincial government shall be in charge of the identification of beneficiaries, supervision of its implementation, and payment of wages which will run from August to September 2020.

At the end of the 10-day work, each worker shall receive a salary amounting to P3,200.00 based on the highest minimum wage rate of the private sector in the region.

Governor Gadiano expressed his gratitude to DOLE for the department’s untiring support since the crisis began in the province.

“This is how things need to be done and let us leave no stone unturned. We trust that, together, we will once again get through this very trying episode of our lives. This too shall pass. Thank you DOLE for the never-ending support said Governor Gadiano during the simple awarding ceremony.

While responding to the COVID-19 crisis is a priority, DOLE ensures that its programs and services to the vulnerable sectors are continuously delivered during this exceptionally challenging time.
