Rama aims for P50,000 Charter Day bonus for City Hall workers

CEBU City Hall employees are expected to receive a Charter Day bonus and Mayor Michael Rama wants to hand out P50,000 for regular and casual workers.

Rama said in a press conference Monday, January 23, 2023, that in the past years, the City Government has been giving out bonuses to its employees during the celebration of its Charter Day anniversary.

The City is set to celebrate its Charter Day on February 24, 2023.

In 2022, regular and casual employees of the City Hall were able to receive P10,000 each.

Rama said that he wants the bonus of the employees to be not less than P20,000 and would be aiming for a P50,000 bonus should the City Hall's coffers allow it.

The giving out of bonuses to the employees is also a manner of appreciating their efforts that made the Sinulog celebration on January 15 successful.

"Sa pila ka tuig nangagi, naa man gyud koy Charter (bonus). As much as possible, not less than P20,000 but if it can be P50,000, why not?" Rama said. (IRT)
