831 2nd district of Misamis Oriental workers employed under DOLE-X TUPAD Program
Cagayan de Oro City --- On 4 January 2017, the Second District of Misamis Oriental in partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment, Regional Office No. X (DOLE-X), through its Western Misamis Oriental Provincial Field Office (WMO PFO) facilitated the culminating program, under its Emergency Employment or Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program  to some 831 worker-beneficiaries.
 
DOLE-X Regional Director Raymundo G. Agravante informed that the objective of TUPAD is to provide a short term emergency employment to all its worker-beneficiaries assigned in corresponding barangays.
 
“The financial assistance aims to augment the meager income of the workers and help them sustain their respective family needs,” informed DOLE-X WMO PFO Head Ebba B. Acosta.
 
These projects will be able to generate emergency employment to the un-employed, displaced members under the LGUs of Libertad, Gitagum, Alubijid, and El Salvador.
 
Misamis Oriental 2nd District Representative Juliette T. Uy has requested DOLE-X for the financial assistance for this project in the amount of PhP 4,750,000.00 to cover the payment of salaries, GSIS (Government Service Insurance System) insurance, personal protective wear and gears, notarial fees, and funds for its culmination activity under Special Project Fund.
 
Congressman Uy clarified that part of the main sources of income of the said municipalities covered mainly relied on agriculture, fisheries and service industries. Considering these economic activities, these municipalities are susceptible to natural and man-made calamities such as but not limited to typhoons, floods, and long drought which caused and may cause displacement of workers and families.
 
Congressman Uy was thankful to DOLE-X on this partnership for under the phenomena illustrated, the affected workers need government intervention such as emergency employment of its affected workers including the disadvantaged and vulnerable to augment meagre income to meet their basic needs.
