Over the years, Regional Conciliation and Mediation Board-Cordillera Administrative Region sustained to overshoot its accomplishments.
The LMC Convergence of Programs which facilitates the delivery of the mandate of the different DOLE Offices and attached agencies on plant level programs and services, had set four and eight targets for facilitation and enhancement, respectively. This was, however, an overshoot as there was 6 and 58 accomplishment for each.
Both facilitation and institutionalization have a 100% accomplishment rate. Enhanced Labor Management Cooperation and Grievance Machinery both have 129% completion rate having reached 90 companies vis-a vis the target of 70.
The improvement of LMC and reduction of workplace conflicts is easily proven as 98.57% of total companies with LMC-GM were not involved in Preventive Mediation (PM) and Notice of Strike (NS) during the year.
The Branch effectively resolved 29 labor disputes. Of these cases, PM and Notice of Strike have a 100% achievement rate, SENA with 96%. In addition, 100% of these were resolved/disposed within the process cycle time.
These figures show that not only do the Branch promote cooperation, they practice it.
