NCR-CITC vows to intensify enforcement and capacity-building endeavors
National Capital Region – Construction Industry Tripartite Council (NCR-CITC) convened on 25 January 2018 for its First Quarter Meeting at the DOLE-NCR Conference Room. The objective of said meeting was to form the Council’s Organizational Structure and sub-committees as a result of the Work Plan adopted by the body during CITC’s Strategic Planning in October 2017.
 
Members were grouped according to the two mechanisms identified in the Council’s Action Plan: 1) Enforcement of Construction Statutory Requirements, and 2) Development of Human Capital through Capacity-building Programs. 
 
Members of the first group presented measures to monitor contractors’ licensing and report unlicensed contractors; construction safety and reporting of action against unsafe sites; and, compliance on wages and social benefits. The second group discussed the capacity building for the workers in the construction industry and agreed on focusing on skills training and certification; values formation and behavioral development; and work ethics seminars, among others. 
 
As part of the policy measures under the enforcement action plans, a Round Table Conference pursuant to the Inter-Agency Regional Level Memorandum of Agreement between and among DOLE-NCR, DILG-NCR, DPWH-NCR, and PRC called  “Strengthening Coordination and Linkages to promote the welfare of the construction workers and the growth of the Construction Industry” now functions as a subcommittee of the NCR-CITC. 
 
Also present were representatives from partner agencies such as the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), and DTI-Construction Manpower Development Foundation. END / Jackilyn Borja / IMSD-LCO-2018-01 / PRJ18-09
