The new set of officers of Bicol Regional Training and Teaching Hospital (BRTTH) Employees Association/Union was formally inducted on June 1, 2021, with the Medical Center Chief presiding.
BRTTH Employees Association/Union was formed out of the need to protect the interests of the workers. It led efforts to provide aid and give benefits to employees.
According to Mr. Alfane, the association will not ask the administration for more than what is due. All they will ask for is what is right to the employees. He also added that there should be a balanced relationship between the union and the administration. The union is not always is not always opposed to the administration; it should be partners with the administration.
Asked about the plans of the association, Mr. Alfane said that first, they want to gain the trust of the employees for the union and the administration. They want the employees’ hard work and efforts to be recognized and appreciated, and the morale of employees to be uplifted.
