Mayor Joy Belmonte has lauded the chairman of one of the biggest barangays in Quezon City for firing several subordinates with regard to their Christmas Party that violated ovid19 health protocols.
Cited for his professional behavior was Chairman Jojo Abad of Barangay Batasan Hills for removing 12 of his personnel after their holiday shindig was criticized on social media for absence of social distancing.
The basis for the termination of their employment was “disrespect for authorities and insubordination.”
For the record, Quezon City is the LGU with the highest number of confirmed Covid cases throughout the archipelago.
“May this serve as a lesson to all public servants in the city that they should always follow the rules…and serve as a good example to the public,”
Belmonte was quoted as saying.
