DOLE provides monetary assistance to 170 workers in the Ilocos Region
At least 170 workers in the Ilocos Region have earned PHP5,000 apiece from the national government through the Department of Labor and Employment because of retrenchment, temporary or permanent closure as a result of the implementation of Alert Level 3. (DOLE).
The DOLE-Ilocos regional office stated in a statement on Friday that it has released a total of PHP850,000 to qualified beneficiaries under the third tranche of the Covid-19 Adjustment Measures Program (CAMP3).
“Of the entire number, 149 have already claimed as of February 17, while 21 are yet to claim their monetary assistance from the DOLE Ilocos regional office’s partner money remittance service provider,” the statement said.
When the alert level status was increased to 3 from January 14 to February 15, 44 establishments reported retrenchment or temporary or permanent closure.
“With 147 recipients thus far, the majority of the beneficiaries are from Ilocos Norte, followed by 14 from La Union, and nine from Pangasinan,” the statement continued.
Lawyer Evelyn Ramos, DOLE-Ilocos regional director, said they have requested additional monies from the central office to accommodate over a thousand other candidates who have been assessed.
CAMP is a DOLE safety net initiative that aims to provide pandemic-affected workers in the formal sector with a one-time financial aid of PHP5,000.
