DOLE Laguna and Laguna Labor Management Council, Inc. Celebrate 8th Annual LLMCi Convention

LLMCi celebrates 8th Annual Convention with learning sessions for participants, oath-taking of incoming officers and awarding of outgoing officers. 

It all starts with showing up. Yet, mere presence is not enough without an open mind. Then, and only then, can parties come to an agreement over what matters most in a negotiation.

With the theme, “Building Consensus to Address People Challenges for Sustainable Development,” the Laguna Labor Management Council, Inc. gathered over 200 representatives from labor, management and government to celebrate the 8th Annual LLMCi Convention on 9 August 2019 at the Cultural Center of Laguna with Gov. Ramil L. Hernandez as a major sponsor.

DOLE Laguna Provincial Director Guido R. Recio was elated by the continued participation of corporate and labor organizations in the activity held every third quarter of the year. From monthly Kapihan Sessions to Continuing Labor Education Seminars, these same participants joined the Council in many other LLMCi activities to promote industrial peace through tripartism. The same enthusiasm is expected from the same group in the Regional Tripartite Industrial Peace Council IV-A Convention.

The event was more than about coming together. It was made more meaningful by learning sessions from equally prolific speakers on their respective fields of expertise. There were also opportunities for dialogue through open forum facilitated after every presentation to clarify matters discussed by the speakers.

Updates on Right to Security of Tenure was discussed by Atty. Nepomuceno A. Leaño II, Assistant Regional Director of DOLE Region IV-A. Not only did he deliver the lecture but he stayed there to grace the occasion from the first speaker to the last one. It is for this reason that the Council is grateful for his overwhelming support.

With the enactment of Expanded Maternity Leave Law, it was refreshing to hear the Department of Health’s take on the significant benefits of this legislation to the mother and child as discussed by Ms. Jellie Anne Palencia, Registered Nutritionist-Dietitian of DOH Center for Health Development.
Results of the recently concluded Laguna Employment Summit were also shared by Ms. Mary Jane B. Corcuera, PESO Officer of the Province of Laguna to end the growing gap between in demand jobs and available skills.

This year, the Council has also tapped two of its officers as resource persons. Ms. Analynn Brillantes, a freelance consultant, talked about “What is Industry 4.0” presenting its impact on present and future jobs which is nonetheless promising given the new wave of digital industrial revolution.

Another LLMCi officer, Mr. Joseph Oliver Tacorda from STMicroelectronics, Inc. shared best company practice on Human Resource Management underscoring the purpose of business that is “improving lives and creating value for stakeholders.”

In efforts to empower HR professionals for better employee-employer relations, Dr. Albert D. Madrigal from the Pamantasan of Cabuyao provided perspective on Capacity Building Initiatives in light of emerging challenges in the labor market.
There was also an oath-taking ceremony for incoming LLMCi officers along with the awarding ceremony for outgoing officers. As another set of officers takes office, LLMCi remains optimistic that the accomplishment of the previous officers will be sustained, if not surpassed by the new ones. Besides, most of the previous officers are still part of the Council.

What is next for LLMCi? Mr. John Joseph B. Cano, the Vice-Chair for Management from Asurion Techlog Center Philippines encouraged company representatives to take part in the Project Angel Tree in December for the benefit of children vulnerable to child labor.

The convention was concluded by Mr. Neil T. Natividad, the incoming Vice-Chair for Labor from Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation Supervisory Union who extended his gratitude to everyone who has made the occasion possible on behalf of the Council.
At the end of day, the Master of Ceremony Mr. Nelson O. Manglo of TMPC along with Ms. Theresa Rosita of J. Poon and Sons Corporation had this to say, “Congratulations to the whole team!”

While certain issues and concerns may not be resolved in one sitting, what’s important is the willingness of parties to appear for a conversation and work things out one step at a time to reach a compromise the LLMCi way.
