Power sector forges strong alliance with DOLE

by RP Escalante

NAGA CITY (26 October) -- A strong alliance was forged among power cooperatives in the region and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in Bicol after a Social Accord Pact was signed by both labor and management last October 22 at the Regent Hotel here, during the conduct of the Regional Tripartite Industry Council (RTIC) for the power sector.

DOLE Bicol regional director Ernesto Bihis said the pact, which was signed by all the attendees, will be the binding force in keeping industrial peace between labor and management in the power industry, the most important industry wherein most businesses are dependent on.

Bihis pointed out that "the power sector is the largest industry with hundreds of workers. "some 90 per cent of businesses depends on power. Imagine what will happen if there will be a labor dispute in this industry, our power supply will be affected and all businesses will be affected."

The social accord pushes for a stronger CBA, higher pay-outs and advance grievance handling on the sector.

"This pact will be the covenant in which as a tripartite council all members must respect, respond and go back into in case of doubt and disagreements," Bihis said. (DOLE/PIA) [top]
