Jerry Treñas to rehire, fire job hires


Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas will rehire job hires who were fired by former mayor Jose Espinosa III.

“I will rehire those who had been fired and terminate ones who had been hired during the campaign period,” said Treñas who won against Espinosa in the last midterm polls.

He also expressed possibility of hiring additional job hires.

Espinosa, who assumed as city mayor after Jed Patrick Mabilog was dismissed from service, started firing and hiring casuals during the second half of 2018.

The ex-mayor, however, denied he was going after employees identified with Treñas and replacing them with his own supporters.

Treñas did not say how many terminated job hires the city government would rehire.
