The Metro Manila Council has passed a resolution mandating an adjustment in the working hours of local government units in the National Capital Region in a bid to reduce traffic congestion, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority said.

Starting April 15, working hours in LGUs will shift from the traditional schedule of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The MMC, composed of the 17 mayors in Metro Manila, is the governing board and policy-making body of the MMDA. 

LGUs were advised to issue an ordinance to implement the adjusted working schedule.

However, government agencies in Metro Manila providing essential services may adopt the adjusted working schedule provided that they ensure continuous and uninterrupted public service delivery.

The MMC resolution recommended that President Marcos issue an executive order for the implementation of the modified working hours in Metro Manila local governments.
