Davao City – “The Regional Conciliation and Mediation Branch XI promoted Grievance Machinery to the students of School of Business and Governance of Ateneo de Davao University on January 22, 2019 at Finster Auditorium, Roxas Ave., Davao City,” Ms. Aerrine Marie R. Reyes, OIC-Director announced earlier today.

The Human Resource Development and Management students led by Ms. Elaine Rae L. Calio, Secretary General of Ateneo Human Resource Management Society and chaired by Ms. Michelle Rose M. Juadiong, DM-HRM of School of Business and Governance (SBG) invited the branch to talk on “Procedural Due Process:  Grievance Machinery Implementation” during their SBG Forum on January 22, 2019.  This is in line with their SBG Week starting January 21-26, 2019 with a theme, Excellence:  Above and Beyond the Call of Duty through Collaborative Efforts and Distinctive Expertise.

“This is a great initiative for the school since this can really help them prepare themselves for their career and work as HR Managers or perhaps as entrepreneurs or as employees after graduation,” Ms. Reyes said.  “Likewise, this is part of the branch’s advocacy for graduating students since it provides awareness that there are existing programs such as LMC and GM that they can utilize the moment they join the world of corporate or perhaps start their own business,” she added.

Other topics discussed by invited resource speakers during the seminar were Getting Smart with Financing Your Dream Business and Financial Literacy.

Prof. Joeffrey Gomez, MBA served as the overall event head under their Dean Ms. Jenner Y. Chan, DBM.


There were a total of 200 students from different courses of School of Business and Governance who participated. 69 come from Bachelor of Science in Human Resource Management and other students were from BS in Business Management, Marketing, Finance, Accounting Technology, Accountancy and Entrepreneurship.

Senior Labor and Employment Officer Cary Jun P. Montero talked on grievance machinery.  After the talk, he also accommodated questions and queries from them.


Mr. Montero in his finale emphasized one of the key principles “You never negotiate a grievance or a dispute.  You negotiate a solution.”


On October 1, 2018, the branch, likewise, conducted a seminar to 61 HRM students on negotiation process, unfair labor practice, strikes, picketing and lockout and jurisdiction of NCMB. Sheila A. Rivera
