'Endo' to end in Bicol: Biggest firm in Catanduanes absorbs 231 workers

VIRAC, Catanduanes- Two hundred thirty one (231) contractual workers in the island province of Catanduanes were voluntarily absorbed and regularized by one of the biggest firms operating in said island, DOLE Bicol announced in its latest Endo report.


“This is more than good news. It means that we are in the right track in addressing this Endo issue here in Bicol. From the time we launched our mapping and developmental approach in August, we’re now getting continuous-positive results such as this,” DOLE Bicol OIC Regional Director Atty. Ma. Karina Perida-Trayvilla said.

DOLE Bicol said that even prior to the Regional Consultation on Endo on September 1, 2016 at Legazpi City Convention Center, the top executives of Cua Group of Companies, in close coordination with DOLE Catanduanes, decided to support the Endo campaign by regularizing its 231-contractual employees.

In fact, a focused group meeting with the local chamber of commerce and industry was held on August 12 at the Virac Town Center to discuss the regularization of contract employees not just by said company but in the entire province.

“As per report of DOLE Catanduanes, said company already released the appointment papers of their employees on October 1. We believe that this move will inspire other big firms here (Bicol) to follow,” DOLE Bicol OIC regional director Atty. Ma. Karina Perida-Trayvilla stressed.

The 231-workers recently regularized are from the various businesses in shipping, docks and office workers principally operated by the Cuas with primary business in the island province of Catanduanes.

Ms. Christine Tea Cua, VP for Finance of the Cua Group of Companies, said that the move to regularize their workers was not just a show of commitment and support to Duterte’s administration. but was also part of their goal to serve as a role model in the business community in the province.

Through said initiative, they are showing to Catandungans their sincerity to uphold the security of tenure of their workers.

“The move is also to show gratitude to our employees for their unending support, loyalty and commitment who helped us achieve prosperity and success. We also believe that the regularization will yield better productivity from our workers with them being motivated to work harder, now have security of tenure,” Cua Group of Companies VP Christine Tea Cua said.

With said regularization in Catanduanes, DOLE Bicol  nowhas a total of 552 contract workers who were voluntarily absorbed by principal employers since the start of the Endo campaign in Bicol. The number, DOLE Bicol stressed is expected to rise even higher within the week since other DOLE provincial offices have not yet submitted their reports.

“Actually we just finished our Endo provincial consultations in Camarines Norte and Masbate last week and we still have a scheduled consultation in Sorsogon. Our aim in these consultations is to inform our principal employers that it’s better to voluntarily absorb workers rather wait for us to issue a compliance order on Endo,” DOLE Bicol OIC regional director Atty. Ma. Karina Perida-Trayvilla said.

It may be recalled that DOLE Bicol, even before the conduct of the regional consultation last September 1, said that it will give establishments, local companies and manpower agencies here, who feel that they may be engaging on Labor Only Contracting or (LOC), at least until December this year to end LOC or Endo by voluntarily absorbing their workers.

A similar statement was again issued by DOLE-Bicol in late September to again appeal for the voluntary absorption of contract workers.
