Confed urges planter-members
to prepare for migrant workers

The Confederation of Sugar Producers Negros-Panay Chapter is urging planter-members to hasten the processing of documentary permits for sugar migrant workers in light of the recent memorandum from Antique Governor Rhodora Cadiao.

Nicolas Ledesma Jr., Confed Negros-Panay chairman, said with barely two weeks to go, “we need to speed things up so the migrant workers will be in Negros Occidental at the start of the milling season.”

Cadiao, in Memorandum Order No. 68, states the additional requirements for transporting migrant workers to the province, on top of what Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson had issued.
