A total of 150 active members of the Regional Tripartite Industrial Peace Council XI (RTIPC XI) and the Industry Tripartite Council (ITC) throughout Davao Region received health kits from the Department of Labor and Employment XI as part of its social responsibilities to contribute to the government’s effort to curb and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace.

The health kits, consisting of clear face shields, disposable face masks, alcohol, and hand soaps, were distributed to active members of the Academe, Banana, Construction, Information Technology-Business Process Management, Maritime, Mining, and Tourism industries during the 4th Quarter RTIPC Meeting on December 27, 2021. The DOLE XI Field Offices will spearhead the distribution of health kits to the remaining active members in January 2022. This activity is supported by the Bureau of Labor Relations.

DOLE XI OIC- Regional Director Atty. Randolf C. Pensoy extended his grateful appreciation to the active members of the RTIPC and ITCs and acknowledged their consistent participation and support to the activities conducted by the department. “We thank all of you for your relentless support to DOLE despite the setbacks we’ve faced this year. Let us continue to work together in the fight against COVID-19,” RD Pensoy added.

DOLE XI, together with its social partners, is committed to deliver its duty in protecting the worker’s rights and in maintaining industrial peace involving labor and management.
