The provincial government of Pangasinan grants Ph2,000 gratuity pay and P4,000 mid-year financial assistance to Capitol employees of contractual (Job Order) appointments, and consultants.
The Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP), in a special session held on March 18, approved Provincial Resolution No. 765-2018, authorizing the grant of the said gratuity pay and financial assistance.
The provincial government has appropriated funds for the aforementioned government workers in the form of financial assistance to help them shoulder their expenses during these lean months and crisis.
“The provincial government and its officials find it meritorious to reward also, as a token of their dedicated service, all job order employees/contract of service employees/consultants for their unprecedented efforts and assistance in making Pangasinan always No. 1 in terms of public service,” the resolution reads.
