Around 300 job orders (JOs) and casual employees of Cebu City Hall whose contracts expired on September 30 will not be rehired following a series of evaluations and worker appeals.

Mayor Michael Rama issued the statement during the flag-raising ceremony at Plaza Sugbo Monday.

“Let’s go straight to the point, about 300 workers will not be rehired. That is the news. The good news is that thousands will be rehired,” Rama said in the vernacular. (

Employees who have worked at City Hall for more than 11 years and those who are licensed professionals will be automatically renewed, according to the mayor.

But, these government workers should not have a record of theft, he added.

“You listen, as long as you do not commit theft, since for me it is a mortal sin… you will be rehired immediately,” said Rama.
