Vico Sotto said that they will also regularize 617 contractual employees who have been serving Pasig City for more than fifteen (15) years.

The long-term goal of the city government includes:

  • Decent wages for all. No more SG-1. Utility worker natin at least SG-3 dapat (yung mga permanent subukan natin by 1st quarter next year);
  • Regularization of employees (yung next batch natin nasa 617 empleyado na 15 yrs pataas nang kontraktwal.. kung pwede lang sanang sabay-sabay na lahat, pero kailangan strategic at responsable ang pag gawa natin nito);
  • Capacity development (to improve service, and also so that more will be qualified for higher positions);
  • Fully merit-based (unti-unti nating layuan ang kultura ng palakasan); and
  • Nakangiti at walang nakasimangot na kawani ng gobyerno.
