National Conciliation and Mediation Board
Regional Branch No. 5
7 August 2017
Legazpi City – No, he did not stage a labor strike. But yes, Regional Branch Director Reynaldo Foncardas, or “Director Bong” to acquaintances, strikes his magic wand anew! His wizardly exceptional way of settling labor disputes despite the odds is once again manifested in his newly conciliated case between Universidad de Sta. Isabel – Health Services Department (USI-HSD) Employees Union and USI for merely two conferences.
“His uncanny approach in resolving cases even when we thought it is unsolvable due to complicity or complexity but still Director Bong has the knack of finding a way to somehow decide the issue,” answered Supervising Labor and Employment Officer (SupLEO) Josephine Amaranto when asked as to the reason for the early settlement of the case.
