SAN FERNANDO CITY, La Union: Mayor Pablo Ortega has issued an executive order for the implementation of a month-long four-day workweek effective today to May 31, to save on electricity and for city hall employees to have more time with their families during the summer vacation.
Starting today, all city hall transactions will work only from Monday to Thursday, and from 7 am to 6 pm without a lunch break. This measure will help reduce the electricity consumption of the San Fernando City Hall.
The city government is also implementing a previous directive to turn on air-conditioning units from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm to help save on electricity costs.
Ortega, however, said personnel for frontline services, such as those in the health and public safety offices, are not covered by the four-day workweek measure, because they are working 24 hours a day.
