DOLE and RCMB-CAR joined forces to deliver their respective programs and services through a one plant structure which is the Labor Management Cooperation (LMC). Beneficiaries to this program were 21 locators of the Baguio City Export Zone (BCEZ).
DOLE-CAR discussed their programs on Family Welfare, Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) and the Labor Law Compliance System. RCMB-CAR also presented the LMC and Grievance Machinery (GM) mechanisms.
This convergence was able to pro-actively pre-facilitate 14 establishments without LMCs and enhanced 7 companies with existing LMCs.
In a brief dialogue, Mr. Alan Datahan, OIC Administrator of BCEZ and formerly an NCMB personnel shared his idea of coming up with a One BCEZ LMC. This will soon be discussed further by the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) and the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA).
