Seven (7) displaced workers of a beverage warehouse company in Butuan City successfully received their final pay claims through the intervention of DOLE – Agusan del Norte Provincial Office under the DOLE Single Entry Approach (SENA) program.

SEnA Desk Officer Gloria A. Varquez facilitated the payment of the workers’ separation and service incentive leave pay amounting to One Hundred Four Thousand One Hundred Ten Pesos (104,110.00) on October 19, 2021.

Affected worker Herbet B. De Gracia expressed gratitude to DOLE for the immediate response on their request for assistance. “Dako kayo ni ug tabang karun panahuna kining kwarta na among nadawat,” De Gracia said.

Management representative Atty. Junald R. Serrano also offered essential employment opportunities to the seven displaced workers. He manifested to provide immediate employment to the workers in a chicken dressing plant in Brgy. Sumilihon, Butuan City. “Right now, it is very important for those who are blessed to help our affected workers and to do our part to give them essential jobs during this time of pandemic,” Serrano said.

Single Entry Approach (SEnA) program is a DOLE reformed measure that provides fast, impartial and inexpensive settlement procedure for all labor issues or conflict to avoid them from ripening into a full-blown dispute.
