DAGUPAN CITY – The Public Employment and Service Office (PESO) has begun helping colorum tricycle drivers affected by the “Oplan Zero Colorum” of the Public Order and Safety Office (POSO) find another job as alternative to driving tricycles.
A task force was formed by PESO Manager Joy Siapno to assist colorum tricycle drivers in seeking better options instead of plying the streets without holding a tricycle franchise and risk being found or their units being impounded.
As of press time, at least eight tricycle drivers have already been properly informed by the PESO on job vacancies available here and abroad. They were provided with bio-data forms and SRS forms for them to fill out.
“We will personally refer them to the companies that will need their skills, said Siapno.
At least 70 colorum tricycles have been impounded last week by POSO in connection with its intensified campaign against colorum vehicles plying the city streets. (Joseph C. Bacani/CIO/August 31, 2017)
