BALANGA CITY, Bataan-Around 90 management and labor representatives in the hotel and restaurant, construction and education sectors recently attended the first general assembly of the Bataan Industrial Peace Council (BIPC).
BIPC is regarded as the mother council of the provincial tripartite councils of the mentioned sectors.
During the occasion, Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Assistant Regional Director Geraldine Panlilio gave an overview of Department Order 115-11 otherwise known as the “Guidelines on the Implementation of the Incentivizing Compliance Program (ICP)” with emphasis on the Tripartite Certificate of Compliance to Labor Standards.
“Gone are the days when firms perceive us like police officers going after those with violations on labor standards. We are (now) here introducing a developmental approach, through the ICP, which will benefit both management and labor in terms of productivity and competitiveness,” Panlilio said.
The Labor agency official noted that the ICP gives due recognition to companies which strongly promote the culture of voluntary compliance to core labor standards and occupational safety and health standards.
Moreover, DOLE Provincial Director Leilani Reynoso and other staff from the Bataan Field Office gave lectures on Productivity, Republic Act 9231 otherwise known as Child Labor Law, and Workers Rights and Benefits.
