CamNorte Rep. Tallado hails committee approval of bill seeking to protect rights of child development workers
Camarines Norte Rep. Josie Tallado has lauded the committee approval of a proposed measure seeking to protect the rights of child development workers.
Tallado was one of the principal authors of the said measure, which obtained the approval of the House Committee on Children’s Welfare last January 21.
Tallado serves as the vice-chairman of the said House committee.
The solon said that she expects the bill to be passed swiftly in the plenary as well as its counterpart in the Senate.
“Sa aking pagiikot sa ating lalawigan lalo na sa mga Day Care Centers o mga Early Childhood Development Centers sa ating Unang Distrito ay nakita ko ang pangangailangan ng mga Child Development Workers upang magampanan nila ng maayos ang kanilang tungkulin para na rin sa kanilang ikabubuti at sa mga bata na kanilang tinuturuan,” she said.
“Ang panukalang batas na ito ay mag-gagarantiya ng rasonableng pasahod sa mga Child Dev’t Workers at magbibigay din ng iba pang additional compensation and allowances kagaya ng Overtime Pay, Hazard Allowance, Subsistence Allowance, Free Legal Services, Free Medical Examination and Treatment, Access to Livelihoods, Loans, Grants, and Skills Enhancement, at iba pa,” she added.
