Local governments urged to give village frontliners hazard pay 

A LAWMAKER on Tuesday filed a resolution urging local governments to provide special compensation to village workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.

In House Resolution No. 1834, Quezon City Rep. Anthony Peter D. Crisologo said barangay officials and other village workers should receive hazard pay because they have a “crucial role” in the government’s pandemic response.

“Barangays and their workers who serve for the general welfare of their community members are vital in ensuring that all groups, sectors and communities are protected from the pandemic and are reached by the government,” he said.

Mr. Crisologo noted that barangay workers are “not covered by the rules of the Civil Service Commission and are not entitled to the same benefits of regular government employees.”

Citing the Budget department’s Circular No. 2020-1 or the guidelines on the grant of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) Hazard Pay, the House legislator said all village officials and workers who are identified as “frontliners” should be compensated for risking their safety and personal health in the name of service amid the pandemic.

Mr. Crisologo said there are 42,046 barangays nationwide based on government data. — Kyle Aristophere T. Atienza
