City conducts consultation with PWDs

BAGUIO CITY – The city council thru its committee on employment, livelihood, cooperatives and persons with disabilities (PWDs) chaired by councilor Arthur Allad-iw conducted a public consultation last Tuesday at City Hall multi-purpose hall.

The whole-day activity tackled various issues including PWD assessment of legislative actions and legislations and proposed ordinance number 153 series of 2017 protecting the rights, welfare and safety of employees in the information technology business-business process outsourcing sector in Baguio.

The measure is jointly authored by Vice-Mayor Edison Bilog, councilors Allad-iw, Leandro Yangot, Jr., Joel Alangsab, Faustino Olowan and Benny Bomogao.

City council secretary Brenner Bengwayan said among the consultation's objectives include aiding the committee in crafting quality legislation that will benefit PWDs ; serve as venue for comments, inputs and suggestions on gray issues affecting their employment; ensure the full participation of PWDs and prepare them for general assemblies and filling-up of positions in the PWD Affairs Office or PDAO.

Allad-iw presented recent legislation for PWDs as he stressed that they are not seeking special treatment or favors but want to be treated equally under the law and not be discriminated in the workplace and anywhere else.

A representative from the DILG-city office talked on policies and guidelines in the filling-up of the PDAO while resource persons also spoke on proposed ordinance no. 153 series of 2017. An open forum was also held.

Bengwayan said the participants' comments, inputs and suggestions will be collated and presented to the committee and other officials for their information, guidance and needed action.-gaby keith
