The Pasig City government has passed Ordinance No. 39, Series of 2021, which will create almost 1,000 regular job positions pursuant to the city’s regularization program on Nov. 11.

Ordinance No. 39, “An Ordinance Creating Additional Permanent Positions for Various Departments and Offices Pursuant to the Regularization Program of the City Government of Pasig,” was authored by Councilor Rhichie Gerard Brown and co-authored by 12 other city councilors.

The ordinance will create 985 regular positions in total for Pasig City’s local government departments.

Casual and non-regular positions formerly held by the newly regularized employees will be abolished as per the ordinance.

Mayor Vico Sotto officially approved the ordinance on Thursday, Nov. 11.

Since 2019, a total of 1,957 city government employees have been regularized, not including the 985 positions, pursuant to Ordinance No. 39, according to a Facebook post by Sotto on Oct. 10.
