         DAVAO CITY, Oct. 31 — The chairman of the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC) has cited the vital role of his men that contributed a lot in the attainment of the commission’s goals and accomplishments.

        “We can now claim, with pride and honor, that our efforts set a remarkable distinction in the field of public service. This success, however, cannot come into fruition without the contribution and participation of all the personnel,” said NLRC chair lawyer Gerardo Nograles, who is here in Davao City.

        This came after Senator Franklin Drilon himself commended the agency for its good performance specifically its speedy resolution of cases, marked

reduction of caseload and high rate of settlement.

        Drilon even suggested that the agency be recommended for the exemplary performance award bestowed by the Civil Service Commission (CSC). Nograles said the commendation and nomination are the result of their tireless and persistent efforts in pursuing strategic reforms in arbitration and adjudication.

        "Undaunted and steadfast, our endeavors will hopefully merit the reverence and appreciation of the public and our stakeholders-in-interest who may have come to realize the magnitude of our mandates and services,” he said.

        Based on its 2011 performance report, the agency registered its biggest achievement in the resolution of cases as both regional branches and commission proper submitted a similar achievement of 104 percent, meaning more cases were resolved including older cases than those filed with the agency.

        “Notably, based on a nine-year trend, from 2003-2011, the outflow or the cases disposed of outnumbered the inflow or the cases received by the agency,” Nograles said.

        The agency achieved a 97 percent rating for original cases for regional arbitration branches based on a 33,000-target by accomplishing 32,045.

        It also achieved 88 percent in appealed cases commission proper for completing 11,817 cases out of the 13,500 target.(PNA)
