National Conciliation and Mediation Board
Regional Branch No. 5
27 February 2019
Legazpi City – There’s always something to look forward to whenever former Executive Director IV of the National Conciliation and Mediation Board (NCMB) visits a place.
The officers and staff of the regional branch welcomed with enthusiasm the arrival of retired ED4 Reynaldo Ubaldo in Legazpi City to fulfill a speaking engagement requested by the Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office V (DOLEROV).
Ubaldo was invited as one of the speakers during the DOLEROV “Training for SEADOs and General Labor Standards Hearing Officers” held at Christian John Resort, Malbog, Cumadcad, Pilar, Sorsogon on 12 February 2019. He discussed Single Entry Approach (SEnA) Procedures under Department Order No. 151-16 or the Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act No. 10396, or “An Act Strengthening Conciliation-Mediation as a Voluntary Mode of Dispute Settlement for All Labor Cases.”
In consonance with the topic, Ubaldo also tackled techniques in conciliation and mediation and the behavioral and skills requirements of a Single-Entry Assistance Desk Officer (SEADO).
After the discussion, mock conciliation and mediation scenarios were presented by the participants to gauge the learnings from the training.
About 40 participants from DOLEROV and attached agencies attended the training including four representatives from NCMB Regional Branch 5.
