DLSU-Manila management, employees sign CBA for 2000-2005

After nine months of negotiations, representatives of De La Salle University-Manila administration and the employees association have formalized the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) for 2000-2005 on March 20 at the Angelo King International Center. Prior to this, a full settlement on the CBA was achieved last February 21.

“I hope this will mark a new beginning in the relationship between the University Management and the Union. A relationship based on the recognition of the mutual rights and responsibilities of both groups,” DLSU Systems President Bro. Dizon, FSC said. He also congratulated both panels for achieving a mutual agreement in nine months which is an improvement from previous CBA negotiations which took 40 months.

Also gracing the event was Director Leopoldo de Jesus of the National Conciliation and Mediation Board for NCR who commended both parties’ communication, openness and mutual understanding as well as the cooperation of all the negotiators involved for the successful negotiations.

Also present were Executive Vice President Dr. Carmelita Quebengco, DLSU-College of St. Benilde Executive Vice President and head for the DLSU Management Panel Ronaldo Holmes, Employees Association President Baylon Banez, conciliator mediator for the two panels Leonida Romulo, University special counsel Atty. Emmanuel Sales, and DLSUEA members.

The CBA contains 25 articles containing the rights, benefits and privileges and obligations of employees which is updated every five years. The current CBA will now be forwarded to the National Conciliation and Mediation Board at the Department of Labor and Employment.
