Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmena said he would be meeting with different representatives from the city’s business process outsourcing (BPO) sector to hear out their sentiments regarding the unpopular proposed 4-day work week. The scheme, which is being pushed by pending legislation in the House of Representatives, could create an economic dislocation in the BPO industry. Mayor Osmena has indicated that he does not want employees to have to work for up to 12 hours a shift. Under House Bill 6152, companies could reduce the workdays of their employees to four days in a week but, in turn, have the right to increase their employees’ work hours per day up to 12 hours. The mayor said he is ready to take up the issue to President Rodrigo Duterte if needed.
