‘Fast food chains may buy local pork’
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

Some of the fastfood chains in Negros Occidental that have stopped serving pork and pork products on their menus may tap the local market to meet their demands , Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said .

Decena met yesterday with the top officials of Jollibee, Chowking and Mang Inasal , who were amenable to the idea of sourcing local pork.

These fastfood chains have stopped importing their pork meals since the 90-day ban on the entry of pork and pork products from Luzon was imposed by the provincial government on September 11 to keep the province free from the dreaded African swine fever virus.

Four-day work week opposed
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

Labor leader Wennie Sancho of Negros Occidental said they vehemently oppose the proposed four-day work week for workers.

Sancho, secretary-general of the General Alliance of Workers Associations, said the proposal would put the minimum wage earners at a disadvantage since this would mean a reduction of their income and diminution of workers benefits because of the "no work, no pay" policy imposed by the management.

“Any scheme or policy that will result to diminution of wages and benefits is anti-labor. This bill is aimed to reduce traffic congestion in Metro Manila but not to reduce the workers' income. It should not be applied outside of the National Capital Region,” he stressed.
