Nabua Councilor Donna Oñate celebrates approval of breastfeeding ordinance


Nabua Councilor Donna Oñate was happy to see the approval of her breastfeeding ordinance before she steps down from her post to serve as Camarines Sur Board Member.

In a Facebook post, Oñate hailed the third and final approval of the ordinance providing for the strict implementation of the mother-child friendly work environment.

This mandates all institutions, both public and private, to establish breastfeeding stations and to allow breastfeeding employees to have break intervals, she said.

This should be in addition to their regular time off for meals and should be counted as compensable hours worked, she said.

This was her last hurrah!

“Last Hurrah!
