Yokohama workers cry threats, intimidation
CLARK FREEPORT — Officers and members of Alliance of Yokohama Employees (AYE) and Alliance of Yokohama Supervisors (AYS) are now worried of the threats and intimodation they are allegedly receiving from the Yokohama Tire Philippines Incorporated (YTPI) management .
According to the two labor unions, the company is selectively issuing memorandums and transfers to employees identified as members either of the two unions which, they claimed, raised anxiety and tensi on.
Despite the aggressive action by the management, the AYE and AYS stated that they always sought legal remedies to resolve the conflict.
One of which is setting a dialogue between management and union officers, and filing cases in the National Conciliation and Mediation Boar d.
Union officers and members said they feel the tense and pressure by the menagement as shakedwon of security policies were intensified and addtional CCTV cameras were installed.
“‘Yung isa sa aming ikinakatakot at ipinangangamba ay hindi na kami makahinga dahil sa lahat ng galaw namin ay minamatyagan. Nahihirapan din kami magtrabaho at hindi kami nagiging kampante.” AYE President Roel Padilla said.
On the other hand, officials of YTPI belied
percent and Sto. Tomas in 3rd with an RPT collection of 82.52 percent.
Pineda said that the province could benefit more from improved collections as this would rebound into more government programs and projects. She added that the local government units have a role to play in making collections efficient.
The province had instituted the Integrated Taxation Management System (iTAX) for the systematic collection since 2015. The system features integrated processes done in the municipality as well as digital maps and information that assist in tax collection.
The German-made system aims to fully solve problems in RPT computations and fully digitize other tax collections in the municipalities.
The iTax is present in some 11 provinces of the country, with Pampanga being the fourth province in Luzon to implement the system along with La Union, Pangasinan and Mindoro Oriental.
But Pineda is calling for more serious collection efficiency compelling municipal officials to go to the grassroots and address RPT delinquencies.
