GENERAL SANTOS CITY (MindaNews/08 February) — The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) commended the workers’ union and management of a softdrink bottling plant here for the accelerated settlement two weeks ago of their new collective bargaining agreement (CBA).
Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said the signing of the new CBA between the management of Coca-Cola Bottlers Philippines, Inc. (CCBPI)-General Santos City plant and its union General Santos Coca-Cola Plant Free Workers Union-TUPAS (GSCCPFWU-TUPAS) was considered a landmark development after it was concluded in just six negotiation meetings.
She noted that the CBA negotiation and signing were accomplished by the two parties “without any need for DOLE help.”
“This is an indication that when workers and management work together in an atmosphere of trust and with the general welfare of workers and interest of company sustainability and competitiveness in mind,
nothing is impossible,” Baldoz said in a statement issued by DOLE Region1 2.
