TACLOBAN CITY – Some 47 city government workers have undergone an unannounced random drug testing on December 10.
This is the second time that the city government under the administration of Mayor Cristina Romualdez has initiated a drug test this year.
Last October, 49 employees were randomly subjected to drug testing but none tested positive.
The random drug testing is part of the hardline stance of the city government under the leadership of Mayor Cristina G. Romualdez on illegal drugs.
The New Beginnings Drug Rehabilitation Program of the local government unit spearheaded the drug testing activity in partnership with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and the Department of Interior and Local Government.
Workers who will be tested positive in the random drug test and during the confirmatory test will likely be terminated from work but the city government has assured that due process will be followed. – (CIO with a report from K.NAPALA)
