CCTO to axe 154 casual employees

A TOTAL of 154 casual employees of the Cebu City Transportation Office (CCTO) will be unemployed by January 1, 2023.

CCTO head Raquel Arce told SunStar Cebu on Wednesday, December 7, 2022, that the CCTO’s personnel services allocation has already breached the limit set by the Department of Budget and Management.

Currently, there are 554 casual employees under CCTO and most of them are deployed to the field for traffic duties.

Because of this, Arce said the CCTO will have fewer manpower on the road to man traffic during Sinulog 2023.

“Ang akoa ra gyud nga request karon lang gyud January, kung mahimo unta, as is lang ang akoang personnel,” she said.

(My only request is that in January, if possible, the personnel at CCTO will stay as is.) (IRT)
