“TCCLS is given to companies which show commitment and exemplary adherence to provisions on General Labor Standards, Occupational Safety and Health Standards, the Child Labor Law under Republic Act 9231, industrial peace, and enterprise stability and competitiveness,” DOLE Regional Director Raymundo Agravante said.
“This is the first level seal of good housekeeping issued to enrolled establishments per DOLE Department Order No. 115-A Series of 2012,” Agravante added.
Gov Abet S Garcia, even before he became a governor of Bataan when he was a Representative of Bataan’s Second district, had always batted for the protection, just compensation and safety of the workers.
Garcia was the main author and Father of FAB law, that converted the defunct Bataan Economic Zone into a freeport area.
TCCLS is a requirement to qualify for the Gawad Kaligtasan at Kalusugan (GKK) and Child Labor-Free Establishment (CLFE) and DOLE Secretary’s Labor Law Compliance Awards as well as to the highest distinction, the Tripartite Seal of Excellence (TSE).
“The Secretary’s Award can be acquired when the TCCLS, GKK, and CLFE are obtained by an establishment. I am confident that our eleven awardees will continuously work hand in hand with the DOLE to achieve this feat,” Agravante said.
Officials and members of Central Luzon’s Regional Tripartite Industrial Peace Council (RTIPC) selected the winners through a tripartite audit process, on-site validation, and assessment.
