New NLRC-Masbate Office, Faster Service in Filing Request for Assistance and Complaints

     Aggrieved workers in Masbate will be saving more time and money to file their complaints and Request for Assistance (RFAs) in Legazpi City starting June this year. This is in line with the policy pronouncement of Chairman Gerardo C. Nograles to bring closer to the people the services of the NLRC especially in the provinces, with the end view of providing efficient and effective services in filing of request for assistance and complaints.

     Presently, the Commission has a total of 13 Regional Arbitration Branches, six (6) Sub-RABs, one (1) City Arbitration Unit in Cotabato City, and one (1) new extension Office in Masbate.

     The additional satellite offices, i.e., Sub-RABs and extension offices, greatly contribute to the efficiency of the NLRC’s mandate to adjudicate labor and management disputes involving both local and overseas workers through compulsory arbitration and alternative modes of resolution.

     Clients may head to the DOLE Masbate Field Office, Espinosa Building, Mabini St., Masbate to file their complaints/RFAs and may contact the office thru telephone no. (056) 333-38-22.

       Services of mandatory conferences in Masbate City to be conciliated-mediated by Ms. Susan J. Diesta, is scheduled every 2nd and last Thursday of the month
