Editorial: Put Acts Together-A A +A
Tuesday, September 10, 2013
IF THEY truly intend to fight their cause at the Negros Occidental Capitol, officers and members of the Progressive Alliance of Capitol Employees (Pace) must put to mind that they are a union, hence, must act in unison for their common benefit and welfare.
Although disagreement is altogether not impossible, and in fact it is imperative that there is some sort of checks and balance within the union, Pace should avoid the appearance and impression that they are divided on certain issues, specifically, as regards and related to its internal budget.
Here they come. The members of the union have themselves sought or asked for an audit of their monthly dues, to which the union officers have retorted by saying "A Resurrected Issue."
While these are but demands, there may be truth to what is said that
“when there is smoke, there is fire.”
As union members, they are indeed entitled to air their gripes, lest Pace will become another dictatorial set-up at Capitol.
As members, they are entitled to seek an audit of their financial documents, and it does not matter whether only few members have asked for such audit.
Just the same, they are entitled to be heard. And their queries must be properly answered.
If Pace could not settle this matter with dispatch, it will be of no great wonder anymore if their future moves will be disintegrated.
