Quirino Task Force appeals to NGAs to hire more Quirinians
CABARROGUIS, Quirino, June 16 (PIA)—The Inter Agency Task Force (IATF) of this province during the recent Joint PPOC, PDRRMC and IATF meeting passed a resolution requesting the Regional IATF to encourage the national government agencies to increase the number of Quirinian employees in their ranks.
This after knowing that the implementation of some programs and projects for the Quirinians are delayed due to the unavailability of some key personnel of some national government offices.
In the resolution, the provincial IATF has also appealed to the Regional IATF to encourage national government agencies to give priority to qualified Quirinians in the hiring of personnel in their provincial offices so as not to hamper the delivery of the much needed government services and the implementation of government projects.
It can be recalled that the IATF during the Enhanced Community Quarantine period has encouraged work from home arrangement for offices with employees from other places to prevent the entry of COVID-19 in the province.
When the province was placed under General Community Quarantine, the province’s IATF relaxed its guidelines and had already allowed the employees to enter the province provided that they will stay in their boarding houses or to the accommodation facilities to be given by their offices and they should avoid going to some places other than their offices.
Also, all persons coming from COVID affected areas were required to undergo a 14-day quarantine upon arriving to protect the province from community transmission of the disease.
The provincial government had also offered assistance for affected employees in looking for accommodations either in their offices or in lodging houses in the province.
Governor Dax Cua has also encouraged contractors with projects in Quirino to hire workers and staff from the province adding that there are many qualified and skilled workers in the province.
Cua has stressed the importance of the continuity and the fast delivery of government services during this critical time saying that it is during these times that the people need more the government services.
“We should not deprive our provincemates with the programs and other assistance that are due to them,” the governor said. (TCB)
