Baciwa employees
reject joint venture

The Baciwa Employees Union has expressed strong opposition to the signing of the joint venture agreement between the board of the Bacolod City Water District and PrimeWater Infrastructure Corp. of the Villar Group.

Leny Espina, president of BEU, said they are outraged that their officials have betrayed not only Baciwa and its employees but the people of Bacolod.

“The Baciwa Board and senior officials may deny it with all their might but they have effectively surrendered the management and operation to a private corporation,” she said.
