In Bulacan, over Php 4.3M monetary claims settled in one day

BULACAN. 179 terminated workers of RNR Business and Industrial Mgmt. Inc. present during their settlement through DOLE's Single Entry Approach Program on 31 July 2019.

 

MALOLOS— 198 separated employees from Bulacan receive some P4.3 million money claims on July 31, 2019 through the Single Entry Approach (SEnA) program of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). 

 

DOLE Bulacan Field Office Head May Lynn Gozun reported to Regional Director Zenaida Angara-Campita the successful settlement of four requests for assistance (RFA) handled by SEnA Desk Officers (SEADO) Yolly Bugay and Miguel Romero.

 

“Today was indeed a blockbuster. Almost 200 employees walked out of our Office satisfied and very much thankful,” Gozun said, adding:

 

“With SEnA, workers and employers need not go to the long and costly process of filing a formal full blown case. The Department has offered a way to speed up resolution of labor disputes that is accessible, cost-effective, and time-saving.”

 

A big chunk of the P4.3 million settlement is from the RFA filed by RNR Business and Industrial Management, Inc., a service provider of Rombe Philippines. Through the Department’s intervention, 179 of its workers received their separation pay amounting to P3,501,115.85.

 

Another settlement of P187,937 was received by Ereneo Marcos, a terminated employee of LG Global Express Corporation. Marcos was involved in a work-related accident earlier this year which cost him his lower leg. 

 

“Maging ito mang nangyaring pagkaputol ng aking paa ay permanente na, ayoko naman na maging permanente din ang kahirapan ng aking pamilya. Sa tulong ng DOLE, ang natanggap kong pera ay gagamitin ko pambili ng prosthetic leg at tricycle na panghanapbuhay,” Marcos said after claiming his benefits.

 

Other settlements on the same day benefitted laid-off workers from Tomtowers Corp. (P117,311.49– 3 workers) and Bright Zoom Marketing (P527,491– 15 workers). 

 

To request for assistance, Bulakeños may visit DOLE Bulacan’s new office located at 158-C Rosario St., Guinhawa, Malolos. Other DOLE provincial offices may also be visited or reached through their respective numbers.
