Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said today, March 4, that he has asked Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz to act on a petition of some Capitol employees for the removal of Anabelle Palic as Provincial Human Resource Management Office (PHRMO) head.
“Just like before I don’t want to take it up in public but I’ve asked the provincial administrator to oversee this issue,” he said.
The governor assured that some action will be taken.
Diaz on Wednesday told DIGICAST NEGROS a win-win solution is being sought.
The officers and members of the Progressive Alliance of Capitol Employees, and job order and contract service workers, in a petition submitted to Lacson called for the removal of Palic as PHRMO head for her alleged “tyrannical attitude, inhuman treatment and her being the cause of miseries of the lives of the provincial government workers,” PACE president Renelo Lastierre said.
Diaz said he received the PACE petition signed by the Capitol employees Wednesday.
“It is more of an expression of sentiments on the part of our about 479 petitioners. It remains to be an internal show of sentiments on the part of the employees, there is no ground for any administrative action,” Diaz said.
“We will see if there is a win-win solution for this and if we can make the necessary adjustments to restore the trust and confidence of our employees to the Human Resource Management Office,” he said.
Palic has not commented on the petition yet.*
