PASAY CITY - Five (5) administrative staff of the Office for Transportation Security (OTS) took oath before the OTS Administrator on 05 August 2021, as they were promoted from various positions under the Administrative and Finance Service.

These personnel were involved in the day-to day operations of the office even at the onset of the pandemic, to ensure the continuous dispatch of documents, preparation of payroll and other finance documents, and processing of human resource papers. They now occupy the positions Administrative Aide IV, Administrative Aide VI, Administrative Assistant III, and Administrative Officer I.

OTS Administrator Undersecretary Raul Del Rosario for his part, said that the promotion process is part of the organizational overhaul, to let deserving employees move up to various positions, and allow other qualified next in rank occupy the vacancies.

Alinsunod po sa guidance ng ating butihing Secretary Tugade na hopefully mabawasan natin, kung hindi man totally maalis yung job order personnel, kinakailangan natin magkaroon ng tuluy-tuloy na movement sa organization by promoting those who deserve to occupy regular and contractual plantilla positions. Meron na tayong mga naunang iprinomote sa mga airport screeners natin, and now dito sa head office." He said.

He added, "pinapaexpedite ko po ung promotion, lalo na sa ating mga frontliners sa airport na deserving. Of course, mauuna sa listahan yung talagang malinis ang record simula pa sa una. At yung talagang masisipag pumasok at magtrabaho na SSO despite the present condition."
