SU admin, union ink CBA

After more than one year of negotiations which culminated on a strike, the Silliman University Faculty Union, headed by Jan Credo, and the school administration Thursday signed the Collective Bargaining Agreement for the next five years, with a provision for a renegotiation on the fourth and fifth year.

Credo said all the seven deadlock issues have been resolved, although they were not able to get everything that they have demanded, like the P1,500 across-the-board pay increase, but they have agreed to settle with an amount which is in the best interest of the university.

Under the new CBA, the union has agreed to receive P18,000, including a onetime bonus. For the second year, the agreed salary increase is P500 across the board but with a P500 monthly allowance each faculty member, and P1,600 on the third year, or P2,100 total adjustment after the third year of the CBA.

Career service exams tomorrow

The Civil Service Commission-Negros Oriental will administer the Career Service examinations to 3,295 applicants tomorrow in Dumaguete City.

The Professional Career Service exam will be held at the Negros Oriental State University, Negros Oriental High School, and Foundation University, while the Sub-professional Career Service exam will be at the Dumaguete City High School.

The CSC-NegOr said that the “No ID, No Exam policy” will be strictly implemented. Examinees must bring the same ID used at the time of application, or any of the following valid identification: driver's license, passport, PRC, SSS, GSIS/UMID, postal, barangay, voter's ID, PhilHealth or BIR ID, police or NBI clearance, current company/office or school ID, and the original birth certificate.

Law raising penalties vs. hospitals,
doctors demanding deposits signed

MANILA - President Rodrigo Duterte has signed into law a bill imposing stricter penalties on medical facilities and practitioners, who refuse to treat patients in emergency or serious medical conditions without a deposit.

Republic Act. No. 10932, signed by Duterte Thursday, amends Batas Pambansa Bilang 702, or “An Act Prohibiting the Demand of Deposits or Advance Payments for the Confinement or Treatment of Patients in Hospitals and Medical Clinics in Certain Cases,” as amended by RA 8344.

The Act prohibits any official, medical practitioner or employee of a medical facility to request, solicit, demand or accept deposit or any form of advance payment as a prerequisite for administering treatment in serious or emergency cases.
