Amid the continued rising in fuel costs, the resumption of the 5-day work scheme of provincial government workers due to improvement of the COVID-19 situation in Negros Occidental may be put on hold, after all.
Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday said that the four-day work at the Capitol will remain.
COVID-19 active cases further slid to 65 as of March 14, records of the Provincial Incident Management Team show.
A two-day transport strike of transport groups in Negros Occidental has been scheduled on March 21 and 22.
Lacson said he will encourage a carpooling for the Capitol employees in order not to hamper the continued delivery of public services.*
