NLRC reinstates
Ceneco manager


The National Labor Relations Commission in Bacolod City has ordered the immediate reinstatement of Sulpicio Lagarde Jr. as general manager of Central Negros Electric Cooperative in Bacolod City, calling his termination by the CENECO board illegal.

Labor Arbiter Roderick Joseph Calanza, in a copy of the decision furnished the DAILY STAR by Lagarde yesterday, ordered CENECO, through its board of directors Vicente Sabornay, Roberto Benedicto, Julius Tamayo and Raul Alvarez Jr. or any of its authorized officers, to pay Lagarde P601,425.

The amount represents backwages, 14th month pay, allowances, damages and attorney’s fees, Calanza said.moremoremore

Dacongcogon mill
for sale for P300M


Beleaguered Legacy owner Celso de los Angeles failed to deliver on his commitment in the takeover of 70 percent of Dacongcogon sugar mill in Kabankalan City, and it is now up for sale for P300 million, Dacongcogon cooperative chairman Wilfredo Miraflores said yesterday.

Three years ago, De los Angeles leased the Dacongcogon mill and named it United Farmers Sugar Corp. with the intent of buying 70 percent of it but has failed to do so, Miraflores said. Therefore, 100 percent of the mill still belongs to their cooperative, he stressed.

Miraflores said the cooperative’s board recently wrote to De los Angeles terminating his lease of the mill for failure to act on his commitments, with his assets having been frozen by government. moremoremore

Expect more lies at SONA


Expect more lies instead of the real condition the Philippine society is in when President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo delivers her State of the Nation Address on Monday, Makati Mayor and United Opposition president Jejomar Binay said yesterday.

Binay, who is in Bacolod City for various engagements, said the people will once again hear the president proclaim her “achievements” which, in reality, does not reflect the prevailing situation in the country.

He said Arroyo is determined to stay in power beyond 2010 and the public should carefully examine the pronouncements coming from Malacañang.moremoremore
