148 private sector workers support Bukidnon Tripartite Industrial Peace Council special general

Valencia City, Bukidnon --- Some 148 workers from the province’s private sector recently concluded the Bukidnon Tripartite Industrial Peace Council (BTIPC) special general assembly on 6 April 2017 at Hotel de Susana and Resort, Bagontaas, this city.

 

The Department of Labor and Employment, Regional Office No. X (DOLE-X) – Bukidnon Provincial Field Office (Buk PFO) Chief Raul L. Valmores recounted that the BTIPC has come a long way from its creation way back in the early 1990s, up to the present time. “The council has always been active in its mission, to promote tripartite industrial peace and institutionalization of social dialogues and tripartite consultations on policies and programs affecting labor, management and the government,” Valmores added.

 

According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), the Philippines has robust tripartism, as well as its mechanisms and processes on social dialogue. Accordingly, the BTIPC has been recognized as one of the most sturdy and active TIPCs in Northern Mindanao, if not, far ahead than the other provincial TIPCs in adopting and implementing its own programs, projects and activities consistent with the development objectives of the government.

 

Resource speaker Junaliza S. Aragon of the National Conciliation and Mediation Board-X (NCMB-X), an attached agency of the Department, explained the concepts of productivity and innovation.

Likewise, Republic Act No. 8525, otherwise known as “Adopt a School Program, Tax Incentives and Withholding Tax Computation”, was discussed by Bureau of Internal Revenue-Bukidnon Revenue Officer Harly A. Macasling.

 

Discussions continued on Campaign against Illegal Recruitment by Philippine Overseas Employment Agency-X Attorney II Paul D. Sabud and the recently issued Department Order No. 174 on Contracting and Subcontracting.

 

Valmores also reported that a new set of officers and Board of Directors (BODs) for Calendar Year 2017-2019 were elected. “They are tasked to continue the programs, projects and activities pioneered by the outgoing officers and BODs. It shall also be noted that the achievement of the goals and objectives of the TIPC will not be realized without the member’s commitment to pursue the unyielding drive to work together as a team and maintain the spirit of tripartism, continued efforts to attain industrial peace among labor, management and government entities which serves as an effective and efficient communication channel and mechanism for undertaking joint programs towards enhancing labor-management relations,” he concluded.

 

The attendees were very grateful to the BTIPC and to the DOLE for productive inputs and learnings during the assembly.
