NORECO 2 bans posters on poles

The Negros Oriental 2 Electric Cooperative will impose fines on candidates who post their campaign materials on electric posts.

NORECO 2 general manager Eunora Sameon said that, based on Board Resolution 181, candidates will be fined P300 each for posters with wooden and bamboo tacks, and for metal sheets directly stapled, or nailed on electric posts.

Temporary attachments of posters commemorating activities of local government units and non-commercial institutions, like schools, are allowed, provided they secure permission from NORECO 2.

DOLE inspects fishing vessel

Negros Oriental Department of Labor and Employment and Provincial Anti-Illegal Council Against Trafficking personnel inspected deep-sea fishing vessel, F/B San Tiyago, at the Dumaguete City port, and allowed 257 Negrenses to board it for Palawan late Saturday night.

Sandra Delfin of DOLE said the inspection and verification was conducted with other government agencies, like the Social Security System, to ensure that labor laws and standards are complied with by the owner and operator of the vessel that practices “paaling”, or deep sea fishing, using compressors.

She said they made sure that the workers, or pescadores, are enrolled with the SSS, and the master fisherman was required to submit the birth certificates, pictures and medical certificates of their workers to ensure that they are of legal age and physically fit.
