The Employers Confederation of the Philippines (ECOP), together with Mr. Julius Cainglet of the Federation of Free Workers (FFW), met with Valley Golf and Country Club, Inc.’s (VGCCI) General Manager Mr. Cliff Friedman and its management and labor representatives, for an action planning meeting last August 7, 2019.
At least nine (9) companies have been nominated to participate in this initiative wherein the management and labor agree to conduct enterprise-level activities that will enhance trust and confidence between them and improve the existing dialogue mechanisms in place through various capacity-building programs such as thematic workshops and their own action plans.
During the meeting, VGCCI was able to identify the official establishment of its labor-management committee (LMC) as its priority under their action plan. Both management and labor believe that the LMC will enable both parties to have a more harmonious and mutually-beneficial relationship in their day-to-day activities, especially during CBA negotiations. VGCCI, upon the recommendation of Mr. Friedman, will be presenting this proposal to their Board members for approval.
This activity is under ECOP and the Confederation of Danish Industry’s project entitled “Strengthening Bipartite Relations at the National and Enterprise Levels.”
