Baldoz acknowledged the support of the local government units in helping the Department carry out the Labor Laws Compliance System (LLCS) campaign headed by Provincial Governor Jurdin Jesus M. Romualdo and the municipal mayors of Catarman, Guinsiliban, Mahinog, Mambajao, and Sagay.
Mambajao Mayor Maria Luisa Romualdo expressed both pride and pleasure of the declaration of Camiguin as labor laws compliant tourist destination, saying it will contribute to the development and progress of the province. “This marker tells everyone that we are not only capable of giving the correct wages and benefits, as mandated. It also attests that we are treating our employees right by providing them decent working conditions and competitive job opportunities,” she said.
Agravante also expressed joy in enabling the industries in Camiguin to uphold the culture of voluntary compliance. He emphasized that it is the goal of the Department to support the objectives outlined by President Benigno S. Aquino III, which is to help, lead, and make all companies in the region compliant with all labor laws.
