NLRC Disposed 98% of Cases Enrolled in Project SpeED (Speedy and Efficient Delivery of Labor Justice)

Project SpeED was designed to achieve a 98% disposition rate of all cases in the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and its attached agencies, which includes the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC) by April 30, 2011 as directed by President Benigno “Noynoy” S. Aquino III.

 

While the NLRC’s Performance Report details the participation in the Project SpeED (Speedy and Efficient Delivery of Labor Justice) 1, 2 and 3 which aimed to dispose cases within seven (7) months from filing at the Regional Arbitration Branches (RABs) or from receipt of appealed case records in the Commission Proper, the Secretariat - National Conciliation and Mediation Board (NCMB), in its Final Report on Project SpeED, reported that out of 54,630 enrolled cases, 53,556 or 98% were successfully disposed of by the NLRC. This is so because the NLRC, under the stewardship of Chairman Gerardo C. Nograles, has been persistent in pursuing the reforms to continuously improve its services, and focused on its core mission of speedy and impartial adjudication and arbitration of labor and management disputes.

 

Significantly, among the bureaus and agencies tasked to implement the Project SpeED, the NLRC accomplished the highest number and percentage of enrolled and disposed cases. The table below shows the individual performances:
