The provincial government of Negros Occidental will not renew the contracts of 13 ambulance drivers employed by the Provincial Disaster Management Program Division (PDMPD).

The 13 contract workers either failed or were late in submitting trip tickets, according to Provincial legal officer Atty. Alberto Nellas Jr.

Nellas said the decision was made immediately against the drivers. (

The Provincial Legal Office issued show-cause orders to 18 PDMPD employees in October for alleged irregularities and uncouth behavior.

Thirteen of the 18 drivers were accused of having irregularities in their trip tickets, while the remaining personnel were accused of being rude to coworkers and clients.
