48IB Conducts Symposium to Labor Sectors in Bataan

    The 48th Infantry (GUARDIANS) Battalion conducted a symposium on the Prevention of Oplan Aklasan (Labor Infiltration) at FCF Multipurpose Hall, FCF Corporation, 11th Avenue, Freeport Area Bataan, Mariveles, Bataan at 4:00 in the afternoon, yesterday.

    More or less 500 employees of FCF Corporation attended the said event including the Department/Division Heads of Authority of Free Port Area of Bataan.

    The symposium highlights topics on how Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) infiltrates a certain establishment or private company and how it affects the condition of the firm or organization and later, the lives of those employees after a business firm closes.

    Representatives from various Philippine National Police - Bataan offices were also present during the activity.

    Major General Lenard T Agustin AFP, Commander of the 7th Infantry (Kaugnay) Division, Philippine Army said, "Symposium like this does not only prevent infiltration to the labor sector but will also give awareness to private companies on the possible issues that will provoke workers to join leftist organizations. It somehow reminds them to give importance to their employees and address their needs properly.”

    "To those who are lured by the leftist groups or organizations who claim that they are for the rights of laborers, I urge you to think twice. They are not really after your welfare. If a company shuts down, your family will suffer and you will be provoked to join the Communist Terrorist Groups (CTGs) and you might end up losing precious lives,” MGen Agustin added.

    “It is better that we prevent these peace spoilers in exploiting issues in a certain organization that would create division, misunderstanding or even chaos in a certain firm using our laborers and employees for their personal gains. The campaign does not end here instead this is a start in our fight against terrorism and with the help of our private sector we can certainly win this,” said Lieutenant Colonel Felix Emeterio Valdez, Acting Commander, 48IB.
