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,

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.
