Rosales, Pangasinan – Acting Secretary Danilo Cruz led the recent inauguration and blessing of the field office of the Department of Labor and Employment in this municipality.

“Our existing collaboration with our social partners has given birth to a complete menu of employment services for all workers from the 5th and 6th districts of Pangasinan,” Cruz said.

“Since November 2010, some members of the DOLE-Regional Coordinating Committee I like the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, Philippine Overseas Employment Administration and National Conciliation and Mediation Board have converged in this newly built DOLE field office,” Cruz added.

Cruz said that beside the field office is the newly inaugurated training center of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, and soon, a Professional Regulation Commission office will also rise to almost complete all the family of DOLE offices.

DOLE 1 Director Henry John Jalbuena said the event was a gathering of sort of officials and people who are part of the completion of the project.

In his opening message, he thanked Mr. Bobby Rodriguez, the donor of the 2,000 sq.m. lot; former Congressman Conrado Estrella III who funded the construction of the building through his countrywide development fund; and the local government unit of Rosales which committed to facilitate the installation of transportation and convenience facilities.

“The putting up of the DOLE-Rosales field office was conceived by former Secretary Marianito Roque way back his term as DOLE Secretary. It was his marching order to ensure that one-stop-shop dole services will be provided to workers in the 5th and 6th districts of Pangasinan,” he said, adding:

“Now, the vision has acquired more relevance under the administration of President Noy and DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz who are committed in bringing labor reforms, one of which is the establishment of one-stop-shop services for OFWs and other workers to promote their welfare and to facilitate redress of their grievances.”

Located at the government center, Barangay Carmay, the DOLE Rosales is the third field office to be established in the Province of Pangasinan. The other two are found in the cities of Dagupan and Alaminos. ASV
