More than 200 job order workers were allegedly terminated at the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital recently.

Dr. Julius Drilon, CLMMRH chief, neither confirmed nor denied the report when pressed for a comment yesterday.

He told the DAILY STAR, “It’s not 300 who were terminated. I don’t understand...I don’t know what’s your purpose (in writing this story). It’s purely a management decision. I will not give a statement.” moremoremore

BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

In its bid to be economically competitive, the municipal government of EB Magalona has tapped the help of the business sector in Negros Occidental to improve its economic climate.

The local government, led by Mayor Marvin Malacon, initiated a consultation meeting with the leaders of the Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Wednesday at 21 Restaurant in Bacolod City. It was also attended by Vice Governor and governor-elect Eugenio Lacson and representative-elect Francisco Benitez of the third district.

In the consultation meeting, Malacon presented to the group the potential resources of the town. “We have skilled people and raw materials that can only be found in EB Magalona,” he said.
