Construction workers SENA claims reach PhP 300K


Malaybalay City, Bukidnon --- The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE-X), Bukidnon Provincial Field Office (Buk PFO) recently settled a Request for Assistance (RFA) thru Single Entry Approach (SEnA) program for nine construction workers amounting to PhP 300,000.00 remuneration on 8 August, 2019, this city.


Construction Foreman Jerry Mabucon visited Buk PFO requested for assistance on 31 July 2019 for remaining wages and incentives due them. The requesting parties were skilled and labor workers assigned in a rock fall construction on a national highway project at El Nido, Palawan.


Under SEnA, the Single Entry Desk Officer (SEADO) Ruben T. Biado took the request and scheduled the first conference which the responding party (management) willfully cooperated to pay the agreed amount within eight days. The final settlement was witnessed by SEADO Reyna L. Tagailo.


Mabucon gratefully said, “We already received our remaining wages and incentives. I am thankful to DOLE Bukidnon Office for promptly assisting us.”


Being a skilled construction worker for 12 years, Mabucon braved the constant long distance work deployment from his family to earn a living.  As the breadwinner, he sustains the educational finances of his five children who are still in elementary and high school. He is optimistic that he can easily find a job after this predicament.


SEnA is an administrative approach of the government to provide speedy, impartial, inexpensive and accessible settlement procedure of all labor issues or conflicts to prevent them from ripening into full blown disputes. Conciliation-mediation process is utilized as an immediate intervention for amicable settlement among the parties. Department Order No. 107, Series of 2010 mandates to “de-judicialize” labor dispute settlement within a 30-day mandatory conciliation-mediation.
