PGEA conducts forum on gov't employees' issues and concerns

Negros Occidental (26 April) -- The Philippine Government Employees Association is going around the country to gather as much representation of government employees with their respective issues and concerns.

PGEA group headed by Trustee Rosemarie Adjawie came from provinces Roxas, Antique and Iloilo.

The forum was conducted to provide a venue to consolidate public sector inputs on issues and concerns and come up with their recommendations. It also aims to assess and review various government employees work programs and activities and arrive with a common plan of action that will strengthen workers welfare program and benefits.

Department of Trade and Industry Provincial Caretaker Lea Gozales was also invited to provide necessary information on the entrepreneurship program for public sector workers. Aside from the hearing the issues and concerns, PGEA is also urging government workers to engage in a business for as long as it is not in conflict with the present job.

"Unlike other union, we don't rally on the streets. We negotiate in an airconditioned room, across the table," Adjawie expressed in her message.

PGEA has one morning every month to sit down with President Gloria Macapagal- Arroyo to express their different concerns and present their projects.

Organized in 1945, among its accomplishments is the implementation of 5-day workweek, provision of low cost housing, classification and standardization of salaries through the Collective Negotiations Agreement, representation as Board of Trustees to GSIS, Pag-Ibig and PhilHealth and the acquistion of one-hectare land.

The land is where they hold office and some space are being leased for their self-sufficient operations.

PGEA aims to unite workers and defend their rights and interest through honest, efficient and responsible public-service and provide welfare and development-based programs and services to government employees. (PIA/EAD) [top]
