ECOP Director-General Jose Roland Moya was appointed by President Rodrigo-Roa Duterte as employer representative in the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board – National Capital Region (RTWPB-NCR) on 3 December 2019. He took his oath of office on 8 December 2020 at Malacanan Palace in a mass oath-taking of new presidential appointees administered by President Duterte.
