Tigaon, Camarines Sur – Around 2,644 workers from the most vulnerable sector in Tigaon, Camarines Sur will commence their 10-day work period through the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE’s) “Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers” (TUPAD) program on the third week of September.

Among the beneficiaries include locally stranded individuals, solo parents, parents of child laborers, rebel returnees and displaced workers. They come from the 23 barangays of the said town.

Each will be engaged in cleaning of roads and public facilities for the period of ten (10) days which will entitle them to receive P345 for the daily work or equivalent to P3,450 based on the new prevailing minimum wage in the Bicol Region.

Beneficiaries will also be covered with an accident insurance for one (1) year. Also, part of the package of assistance they will receive are personal protective equipment and basic concepts on occupational safety and health and financial literacy during the project orientation.

TUPAD is a community-based package of assistance that provides emergency employment to displaced workers, underemployed and seasonal workers, for a minimum period of 10 days, but not to exceed a maximum of 30 days, depending on the nature of work to be performed.

RD Campita emphasized that the labor department is committed to providing effective temporary employment opportunities to needy workers in the region particularly to those who have lost their jobs or livelihood as a result of the pandemic.
