PIA Press Release

Feature: Bridging the gap in the workplace

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (19 April) -- Human relation plus labor relation equals productivity.

This is the recent battlecry of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) as it launched three significant modules to bridge certain gaps in the workplace.

These modules include labor relations, human relations and productivity 101 which were designed to promote labor education by providing both management and the labor sector the guide for industrial peace.

"This time we are so glad that this program is highly welcomed and participated in by both sectors as they have seen the dire need of such program in the workplace.", said Dr. Leticia Competente of the Davao Doctors College.

DOLE assistant secretary Ma. Teresa Soriano claimed this endeavor as the human dimension of the labor program.

"This is the time that we provide equal opportunities for both labor and management sector to improve communication, acknowledge the hierarchy of needs, and promote healthy interaction so there will be a healthy relationship between the two," Soriano explained.

Jorge Alegarbes, representative of the labor sector in the Regional Tripartite Industrial Peace Council (RTIPC) expressed support to the program.

"We in the labor sector welcome this move and as much as possible we want to maintain industrial peace here in our region." Alegarbes claimed that the region experienced less strikes and rallies concerning labor matters as compared to other parts of the country.

The launching was sponsored by the RTIPC Davao Region and attended by some labor groups like the Association of Trade Unions, Davao Light Employees Union, Davao United Supervisory Union and others.

Management representatives, at the same time, supported the program such as the Association of Labor and Management Practitioners of Region XI, Davao Doctors College, Nakayama Technology Corporation and others. (PIA XI) [top]
