Mayor Sara orders Central 911 new head to end contract of deployed employees

DAVAO CITY, March 19 — Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio ordered on Monday new officer-in-charge of the Emergency Response Center Central 911 Antonio Jaldon to end the contract of all employees deployed in the emergency unit and come up with a new roster of employees.

She told reporters that emergency workers who will complain that they are stricken out of the list of employees will be given consideration, especially if they assert that they are truly working for public service.

“It is only the way for us to determine that they are part of the Central 911. If they complain, we can consider them for a new contract,” Duterte-Carpio said.

She said those who will be given initial consideration will be those present in the list of skeletal force, those present during the consultation-meeting and those who are sick and on-official leave.

Duterte-Carpio observed that 120 employees were absent when she conducted a consultation-meeting among the members of the Central 911 Thursday at the Davao City Sports Complex.

She said employees who failed to show have to explain their absence.

The mayor said employees who do not show interest to explain and appear are considered resigned since their act is already an indicator that they no longer cooperate with the Human Resource Development Office.

“We issued a memorandum for all members of the Emergency Response Center Central 911 to appear during the meeting, except for those in the skeletal force who would attend to emergency calls,” she said.

Duterte-Carpio stressed only employees who are actually working for public service need to be paid with public funds.

She said the local government will still account for the members of the Central 911.

“If they no longer appear, then they are considered resigned,” Duterte-Carpio said.

She said she will wait for Jaldon's recommendation of the new employees who will undergo reorientation and retraining. (PNA) scs/JSGD/ldp
