Caloocan Rep. Edgar Erice assures city hall employees of better treatment if he becomes mayor
Caloocan Rep. Edgar Erice, who is running for mayor, has penned an open letter to city hall employees vowing to treat them better should he win as mayor.
Erice said that as a former ordinary employee of the city, he understands their condition well.
He has also witnessed how they were mistreated due to politics, and deprived of advancement, he said.
But he said he would be a different kind of mayor.
Erice said he would implement a merit system where employees would be hired based on their competence and experience without politics getting in the way.
He also said he would not retaliate against workers who supported his rivals.
Suspensions or punishments would be based on the law, not political harassment, he added.
He would also return floating employees to their proper places.
Job order workers would get the proper salaries and would be prioritized for vacant positions, he said.
“Ako ang magiging tagapangtanggol ng inyong mga karapatan at kapakanan bilang kawani at mamamayan. Hangad ko na sama-sama tayong magtatamasa sa mga benepisyong hatid ng isang payapa, ligtas at maunlad na Lungsod ng Caloocan,” he said.
