NCMB Region 7 resolves notice of strike in a Cebu beach resort Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz yesterday announced the settlement of the notice of strike (NOS) involving the P and I Resorts Inc. in San Isidro, San Fernando in Cebu following the successful conciliation efforts of the National Conciliation Mediation Board Regional Branch No. 7. Baldoz, citing a report from NCMB Executive Director Reynaldo R. Ubaldo, said the NOS of PULCHRA Beach Resort Employees Union has been amicably settled on 24 April 2013. NCMB-RB No. 7 Conciliator-Mediator Gemma R. Poloyapoy facilitated the settlement. “I commend the parties for choosing a peaceful solution to their dispute. A strike could have been debilitating. It could have paralyzed the operations of the company and affected the resort patrons. Worse, it could have hurt the workers,” said Baldoz. P and I Resorts, Inc. is engaged in recreational services and has 80 employees. Located at San Isidro, San Fernando, Cebu, it is represented by Koji Inoue, general manager; Bernadette Hernaez, human resource manager; and Atty. Joselyn Pesquera, legal counsel. PI Resorts, Inc. PULCHRA Beach Resort Employees Union is an affiliate of the Alliance of Labor Union-Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (ALU-TUCP) which represents for collective bargaining purposes the 80 workers in the bargaining unit, 40 of whom are union members. It is headed by Santiago Marivall Enad. On 21 March 2013, the union filed a notice of strike (NOS) against the management for alleged unfair labor practice, specifically union busting due to alleged dismissal of the union president, and non-compliance with grievance procedure. Conciliator-Mediator Gemma Poloyapoy, who was assigned to conciliate the dispute, conducted several conferences between the union and management to narrow their differences and arrive at a settlement. On 24 April 2013, Enad, on behalf of the union, accepted the management’s offer of early retirement program benefits amounting P142, 514. The agreement on the settlement was sealed with an ALU-TUCP representative concurring. Baldoz, in expressing her thanks to the union and the management for opting to dialogue and explore a peaceful solution to the dispute, said: “This receptiveness to amicable and peaceful settlement showed the union’s and the management’s maturity, which augurs well for harmonious working relations in the establishment.” End/letmaring
