Representatives Antonio Tinio and France Castro of Alliance of Concerned Teachers said Joint Circular 1 issued by the Civil Service Commission allows government agencies to hire personnel on Contracts of Service (COS) and Job Orders (JO) or contractual basis.
Since the CSC, Commission on Audit (COA) and the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) have no guidelines governing contracts of service and job orders, as of July 2016, there were 595,162 contractual workers in government, Tinio said.
“The government is already the biggest user of contractual workers, and the CSC circular further allows government agencies to hire personnel on COSs and JOs until end of 2018,” the lawmaker added.
