DOLE chief joins conduct of joint assessment of ship in Surigao Norte

CLAVER, Surigao del Norte, Aug. 26 (PIA) - Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis Baldoz emphasized that the DOLE's new Labor Laws Compliance System (LLCS) for the first time covers and applies to companies and workers in domestic shipping and, thus, encouraged Philippine-registered ships plying domestic waters to voluntarily comply with all labor laws.

"Ensuring compliance with all labor laws, including with safety and health standards, are pursuant to our obligations under the Maritime Labor Convention, 2006, and national issuances, such as Department Order (D.O.) No. 129, or the 'Rules and Regulations Governing the Employment and Working Conditions of Seafarers Onboard Ships Engaged in Domestic Shipping, and the new LLCS,'" said Baldoz during a dialogue with officials of officials of Taganito Mining Corporation (TMC), one of the country's largest nickel mining companies.

Baldoz, together with Undersecretary Rebecca Chato, head of the DOLE's internal and labor relations cluster, and DOLE Caraga regional director Johnson Canete, recently visited Claver in Surigao del Norte to join in the conduct of a joint assessment of TMC's cargo vessels at the Claver Port, in a bid to emphasize the seriousness of the DOLE in accelerating implementation of the new LLCS.

"Voluntary compliance fosters harmonious workplace relations and is generally good for business. It leads to productivity and profitability," the labor and employment chief emphasized before boarding one of TMC's cargo ships, the LCT TMC II, for the joint assessment.

TMC owns three cargo vessels and contracts several other ships to transport its mine production from the shore to the ships for export. It engages a crewing agency, Lacerta Shipping Agencies Philippines, Inc. to man its three vessels.

The joint assessment is one of the mechanisms that the DOLE uses under the LLCS. During the process, management and worker representatives sit down with the DOLE to assess compliance, with the latter informing the former about the various labor laws, including the safety and health standard regulations, that the company ought to comply.

If deficiencies or gaps in compliance are discovered during the assessment, a plan of action is formulated to correct the gaps or deficiencies. The DOLE teaches the company and the workers on how to comply. After the gaps or deficiencies are effected, the DOLE issues a certificate of compliance to the company.

Engr. Eric Igual, together with the TMC management representative and the TMC union, informed Secretary Baldoz that the result of the joint assessment showed very minor deficiencies/gaps. Some of these were the lack of organized safety and health committee; lack of occupational safety and health reportorial requirements; lack of on-board and on-shore complaint procedure; no weekly rest period; lump-sum salary structure; no written program and policy on prevention of HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B, TB, and sexual harassment.

Also, the employment agreement of the 19 crew of the ship is not co-terminus with the service agreement of the manning agency with the principal, and the manning agency is not registered with DOLE under D.O. 18-A.

In the presence of Secretary Baldoz, the TMC management submitted an undertaking and pledged to correct these deficiencies/gaps in 20 days under the agreed action plan. On this note, DOLE Caraga regional director Johnson Canete issued a CoC to the mining company.

Baldoz instructed Conciliator-Mediator Ericson Igual, head of the joint assessment team, to restructure the salary structure of the seafarers manning the ship, and also directed Director Canete to continue monitoring the company's compliance, particularly with its undertaking.

"The DOLE is here to help you comply. All our technical assistance services are free. You should not anymore fear the DOLE because our new labor law compliance system is designed as a mix of developmental and regulatory approaches that encourages voluntary compliance," Baldoz said.
