The change in power at Cebu City Hall may mean trouble for some 500 job order workers, who risk losing their jobs, according to acting Cebu City mayor Margot Osmeña. The acting mayor said Cebu City Hall doesn’t have a clear record of the number of job order workers but said 600 of them charge their salaries with the city’s calamity fund. Of the number of workers, Osmeña said they recognize only 100 of the job order workers. She said that even City Hall’s human resources department cannot give them a list of the workers.

They are not going to be renewed until we find out what they’re working on, unless they are validated. They are supposed to be project-based only. Acting Cebu City Mayor Margot Osmeña.

A City Hall transition committee member who asked not to be named told Cebu Daily News they found at least 2,000 job order workers assigned to different Cebu City Government offices.

Rama raises more questions after returning 2 vehicles

TWO vehicles with the vanity plate mayor were turned over at the South Road Properties, where all the vehicles owned by the Cebu City are being kept, upon the recall order of Acting Cebu City Mayor Margot Osmena. However, the return of the two vehicles only elicited more questions from Osmeña, who wondered why suspended Cebu City mayor Mike Rama had two vehicles.

“The other (newer) one just came in last March, after his suspension…but still, why will we get a new one when the other one is not that old?” Acting Cebu City Mayor Margot Osmeña.

“He used the other one as a decoy. That’s how paranoid Mike Rama was.” former Cebu City councilor Augustus Pe Jr.
