of P5K financial assistance
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

A labor leader is urging sugar farmers and workers to avail of the P5,000 financial assistance from the Department of Labor and Employment amid the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic.

Roland de la Cruz, president of the National Congress of Unions in the Sugar Industry of the Philippines, appealed to the planters and employers of the sugar workers to let them avail of the DOLE’s Covid-19 Adjustment Measures Program, a safety net program that offers one-time financial assistance, worth P5,000, to affected workers in private establishments.

Under this program, it is the responsibility of the employers to submit the Establishment Report form, the list of workers who will avail of it and the previous month’s payroll, he said.
