MBCCI to appeal DOLE circular
on filing of wage hike exemption

Members of the Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry will appeal the memorandum circular of the Department of Labor and Employment in Region 6, asking businessmen affected by super typhoon “Yolanda” to file for six-month exemption from the P10 wage hike.

DOLE officials, led by Director Ponciano Ligutom, should themselves identify the towns and the cities badly affected by the typhoon instead of the businessmen applying for exemption, MBCCI President Frank Carbon said.

He said businessmen, especially in northern Negros Occidental, already incurred losses, and DOLE should not give them a hard time by asking them to apply for exemption.moremoremore

The Army’s 303rd Infantry Brigade yesterday offered medical treatment to members of the New People’s Army reported to have been injured, when they harassed a temporary military outpost on Feb. 17 in Sitio Aniya, Brgy. Winaswasan, Calatrava, Negros Occidental.

Col. Jon Aying, 303rd Infantry Brigade commander, said many of the rebels, who were previously injured in encounter with government forces, had died due to inadequate medical treatment.

One of the rebels who had participated in the harassment of 62nd Infantry Battalion Bayanihan Team Monday last week, was killed during a brief firefight, Aying said.moremoremore
