On new signed CBA

“We are learning; we are gladly learning.”

– Bro. Noli Gagote


The Taytay United Methodist Christian School Faculty and Employees Association (TUMCS-FEA), a charter of the Samahang Manggagawang Pilipino – National Alliance of Teachers and Office Workers (SMP-NATOW), had signed a new collective bargaining agreement with its school management last May 16. Bro. Noli Gagote, the Union President, acknowledged the federation for the assistance it had provided to their negotiating panel from crafting the proposals to the conclusion of the CB negotiation. SMP-NATOW Secretary General Sis. Milagros C. Ogalinda and National Project Coordinator Bro. Avelino S. Caraan, Jr. assisted the Union in drafting the proposals and strategizing the negotiation.


Remarkable improvements brilliantly defended by the Union panel include the ATB salary increase, sick leave conversion and coverage, substitution pay, and HMO provision. These add to the CBA incorporation of the Union Scope.


Present during the CBA signing held at the TUMCS Administration Office were the members of both negotiating panels.
