CLARK FREEPORT – The management and Board of Directors of the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) will exhaust all efforts and legal means to help CDC employees on their plight over the implementation of the Compensation and Position Classification System (CPCS).

During a press conference held over the weekend, CDC President and CEO Manuel R. Gaerlan said the CDC management and CDC Board will request for the suspension of the CPCS implementation, and appeal to the Governance Commission for Government-Owned and Controlled Corporation (GCG) to give the CDC rank-and-file higher Job Grade equivalents.

“We will fight for your welfare, we will appeal sa GCG at kung kinakailangan ay sa Office of the President dahil yung naging basehan ay isang Executive Order,” Gaerlan added.

The CDC president also said the management will consider filing a motion for reconsideration for the job position classification, in view of the loss of some of their workers’ allowances and incentives due to the implementation of the CPCS.

“I enjoin the members of ACCES na pagtulung-tulungan natin ito. We fully support you, we are one with you in convincing, hopefully, the Commission on Good Governance, so that they will reconsider,” Gaerlan said.

Gaerlan stated that the CDC management is aware of the employees’ concerns and completely supports them in voicing their grievances in the hopes of convincing the authorities, notably the GCG, to reconsider their decision on the CPCS.
