Cebu City—Four agency employees get regularized and will be covered with labor standards, social and medical benefits after the swift settlement of the request for assistance in two conciliation conferences says Director Edmundo T. Mirasol.
Ms. Imee D. Igo-ogan and three others who worked as cashiers at La Nueva Supermart Inc.- City Hall under Genesis Agency Manpower will now be regular employees of the former starting September 12.
The agreement which was forged last September 5 ended the employee’s fear of losing their jobs because their contract with the agency had already ended.
Conciliator Paciano L. Murro Jr. who facilitated the settlement said that the requesting parties filed the request for assistance on account of holiday pay, social and medical benefits and end of contract.
“The workers who have been employed with the agency for one year and one month will no longer undergo further evaluation upon absorption by La Nueva.”, Conmed Murro said.
According to Murro, the management was convinced of regularizing the workers in keeping with the DOLE thrusts and programs on voluntary regularization.
Director Mirasol commended Conmed Murro for the immediate settlement of the request for assistance.
La Nueva Supermart Inc. is a chain of supermarkets that sells fresh meat and produce and other wholesale goods/grocery items that lots of sari-sari store owners are fond of buying in bulk.
