10 workers get over 90k as DOLE 2 settles labor dispute

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan --- At least 10 workers received some P91, 798.00  monetary claims through the Single Entry Approach (SEnA) of the Department of Labor and Employment – Region 2 (DOLE 2).



Single Entry Desk Officer (SEADO) Arcely D. Parallag said the intervention emanated from a request for assistance (RFA) by the workers.

“An RFA was filed with the DOLE Cagayan Field Office regarding the unpaid wages and other monetary claims of workers who have been working for four (4) diferrent establishments,” Ms. Parallag said.

She noted that two (2) of the establishments were construction businesses that failed to pay service insentive leave, 13th month pay, and regular holiday pay of their workers.

DOLE 2 Regional Director Atty. Sarah Buena S. Mirasol lauded the cooperation of both parties in allowing the DOLE’s SEnA to provide a solution to their labor issues.

“We are grateful for the openness and eagerness of both parties to have their issues settled peacefully through the aid of our Single Entry Approach program. Through our intervention, we were able to facilitate an amicable settlement and prevent this particular labor issue from ripening into a labor case, saving both parties from going through aprotracted litigation process,” Dir. Mirasol said.

SEnA is an administrative approach to provide a speedy, impartial, inexpensive and accessible settlement procedure for all issues or complaints arising from employer-employee relationship to prevent them from ripening into full blown disputes. Under this approach, all labor and employment disputes shall undergo a 30-day mandatory conciliation-mediation process to effect settlement among the contending parties.


Request for SEnA can be filed at the Single Entry Assistance Desk (SEAD) in the region where the employer principally operates. In case of a union or federation representing a local chapter, the request shall be made at the regional/provincial/ district office where the union or local chapter is registered. (END/JVP/RBE)
