Employee’s unions at Philpost declared all-out war against the agency’s mass firing of employees. The Civil Service Commission says that there are now thousands of vacant posts at Philpost since the post master removed workers who have been serving at the Philippine Postal Corporation from 4 years up to 20 years –some due to tardiness while others were fired without notice. The post master, former governor of Bulacan Maria Josefina de la Cruz reportedly hired over 60 new employees to replace the thousands of employees she removed. These 63 very lucky individuals, reports say, have rather high salaries.
Aside from the mass firing of employees, the post master is also being questioned by the media regarding a multimillion mailing arrangement with Banco de Oro.
