Alcohol Firm To Retrench 110 Workers Due To Suspension

Date Posted: Aug 26, 2009


The Asian Alcohol Corporation in Negros Occidental announced that they will be retrenching 110 regular employees on September 1.


 “The company decided to retrench half of the 207 employees because the company could no longer sustain its losses due to its suspended operations,” says AAC vice president for operations Susan Benitez.


Earlier, the Palupandan town government and the Pollution Adjudication Board had issued a Cease and Desist Orders (CDO) to the alcohol firm.


The company had previously axed 210 casual employees right after they received suspension.


Benitez added that they have to displace their workers because they believed that the chances to resume operations are slim. The company stopped operation after a backhoe allegedly working on the Palupandan town drainage system hit the pipe that supplied water to the plant at 10:30 pm on June 01.


“The company can no longer sustain the enormous losses it incurs each day that it does not operate. We have no other recourse but to implement this decision of retrenchment to prevent further losses,” says ACC senior vice president and general manager Henry Tan.


Tan promised that despite the financial crisis that the company is experiencing, they will comply with the separation pay and other benefits that employees to be retrench will get.


The employees of the said company led by the AAC Workers Independent Union president Reden Nobleza, are now seeking assistance from the Governor of Negros, Isidro Zayco for possible livelihood options and job assistance.
