The president of the oldest faculty union of the Negros Oriental State University including the members
have sought the assistance of a labor organization in filing a petition for certification election
before the Bureau of Labor Relations (BLR) in Manila, after the expiration of the CBA between the
NORSU and the other union which is the Negros Oriental State Univrsity Faculty Union (NORSUFA).
The Faculty and Staff Association-All NORSU Faculty
Union (FASA-ANFU) headed by Marx Iturralde, an
instructor 1 of the university disclosed, as teachers they
have their limitations regarding processes to be observed
in filing petitions for certification elections. According to
Iturralde FASA-ANFU already has a working relationship
with the Associated Labor Union-Trade Union Congress
of the Philippines (ALU-TUCP) for the latter to extend
their expertise on unionism and linkages on matters
The BLR in Manila has recently issued a decision
granting the petition of FASA-ANFU for a certification
election the schedule of which is being worked out, with
the Department of Labor (DOLE) in Region 7 to act as
mediator. However, it is still waiting for the replacement of a facilitator in lieu of arbiter
Atty Jose Ogang who has

Why did the office of the President make PNoy
believe that he is not covered by the doctrine
of command responsibility when it is
an old law, Executive Order 226 issued by another
commander in chief himself named Fidel V Ramos in
Feb 17, 1995?
Poor President Noy, he should have known better.
But no worry, he cannot be impeached because he has
too many supporters in the Lower House who owe him
a lot of PDAFs. But they said, surely, dereliction of
duty charges which caused the lives of 44 elite commandos
will be charged upon him after 2016 when his
term expires. That is , if the forgetful Filipinos do not
fail to remember. We have such short memory.
They even forgot that another president Gloria
Arroyo is now 4 years under detention and under
United Nations Humanitrian law on political leaders,
she ought to be released on house arrest like
Myanmar’s Sui Chi. Why is it that ALL her co-accused
on PSCO plunder are now released on bail,
except GMA? Smells personal vindictiveness. Let
us pray for GMA who is said to be physically deteriorating
in the Vets’ hospital. Does PNoy ever pray for
The president’s drumbeaters again unwittingly
embarrassed their boss because indeed a former president
himself Fidel V. Ramos has revealed that he has
passed into law by Executive Order no. 226 making
heads of offices administratively liable to say the least
if he is found guilty to have evaded to accept command
responsibility on any policy being currently implemented
or has failed to be implemented. In short, it is now official
that in this country THE BUCK STOPS WITH THE
PRESIDENT meaning, in the ultimate analysis, the
president is responsible, and accountable for the lives
of 44 elite commandos killed or massacred in
Mamasapano on Jan 25.
So many angles have been spoken,
written and even shown about
the infamous Mamasapano massacre
of 44 elite police commandos. There has been a lot of mention
about the unseen hand of the Americans
conceptualizing if not directing the “live”
morning show in full view of Pentagon
people, via drones and satellites.
But here is a view of a veteran of the
U.S. army, a retired captain in the U.S.
special forces who saw action in Vietnam
and Granada . We would like to quote
his reactions which we sought, and retired
Army Capt James “Kojak” Hughs
obliged the following:
“As a professional warrior with combat
experience I can NOT understand the
Philippines penchant for self-punishment.
The President did his job. He gave
qualified professionals ( Purisima was
under graft charges NOT charges of military/
police incompetence) the job to arrest
a known murdering terrorist. PRESIDENT
DID HIS JOB.
“Could the operation have been done
better? of course. It is easy to look back
and see the mistakes; much more difficult
to look ahead and anticipate mistakes.
WE ARE PUNISHING THE VICTIM.
