The Bontoc municipal government will start giving hazard pay to its garbage collectors and plumbers.
Workers who will be eligible to receive hazard pay are the regular employees of the Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office (MENRO) and Municipal Waterworks Office.
The workers’ hazard pay will be P1,000 per month.
Bontoc Mayor Franklin Odsey the workers deserve the hazard pay.
“Our garbage collectors and tuberos are performing duties and responsibilities that are hazardous to their health and they deserve to be granted with hazard pay allowed under existing rules and regulations,” Odsey said.
