Yanson feud displaces 217

The feud among siblings over the control of Vallacar Transit Inc. also affected 217 employees of the Ceres Mart, who lost their jobs, after its 13 branches in various bus terminals in Negros and Panay were closed down.

To soften its impact, Ceres Mart Human Resource Officer Neil Derek Hibionada yesterday said that their employer, Emily Yanson, is giving a separation package to affected employees, depending on the length of service they have rendered to the company.

Hibionada, who met yesterday the affected workers of Ceres Mart, assured them however that this is a temporary setback as they will be given priority in rehiring once the management is able to look for commercial establishments to display their products. moremoremore

‘OVY owns Ceres’

Legally and morally, Olivia V. Yanson (OVY) owns Ceres, a press release from the camp of Leo Rey Yanson said yesterday.

“On hindsight, Vallacar Transit Inc. (VTI) was started and honed to what it is now by our parents as a conjugal venture. The Yanson Four are ingrates to claim that OVY no longer owns VTI,” it added.

Leo Rey said it is but fitting and proper that OVY be accorded respect and control over what she built over the years. “Only insatiable greed and plain opportunism could have impelled them to disrespect OVY and claim falsities against her, simply because OVY is advancing in age, and her husband, Ricardo B. Yanson, is no longer around.” moremoremore
