DOLE brings services caravan cum jobs fair in Surigao

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Caraga Regional Office in coordination with TESDA, RTWPB, PESO, OWWA, and the private recruitment companies brought its 2-day services caravan and jobs fair to Surigao City in time with the holding of 5th Caraga Mining Summit, purposely for the workers and dependents in the mining sector which were affected by the global financial crisis (GFC) recently held at Hotel Tavern, Surigao City.

Highlighting the caravan was the advocacy on DOLE's TUPAD and ISLA programs under the Comprehensive Livelihood Emergency Employment Program (CLEEP). The "Tupad" program grants families of displaced workers enough cash to provide them their basic needs until such time their bread winners get another employment, while the "Isla" program gives financial help to fisher folk.

Overseas employment assistance and the release of livelihood assistance to organization members of displaced workers were provided thru OWWA and the private recruitment agencies.

Meanwhile, registration and assessment of workers/dependents who availed the TESDA scholarship were also given priority. Promo diskwento among suppliers of various food and non-food products, and legal assistance for workers' financial claims from their employers were also facilitated by the RTWPB.

Reports from DOLE bared that out of more than 700 who participated in the caravan, 60 family members/dependents of GFC affected workers from Malimono, Surigao del Norte were given livelihood assistance for the implementation of livelihood projects.

116 displaced workers and dependents were registered and assessed for TESDA training/retraining/retooling scholarship. 65 workers were assisted in the legal queries on labor cases and labor standards and enforcement procedures.

It also solicited a total of 2,652 job vacancies from 7 overseas recruitment agencies and 2 local companies who participated in the jobs fair. 269 were registered, 191 were qualified for further interview, and 24 others were hired on the spot.

The said caravan was graced by some local chief executives of the province, heads of DOLE (RCC) agencies and the PESO managers of different municipalities. (PIA-Surigao del Norte/DOLE)
