MANILA, Sept. 3 – The Public Sector Labor-Management Council (PSLMC), in its Resolution No. 4, series of 2010, has reduced the percentage of membership requirement for the registration of public sector unions, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) said Friday.

Effective Sept. 1, 2010, an organizational unit would need only at least 10 percent membership out of its total number of rank-and-file employees to be able to apply for registration, the PSLMC ruled in the said resolution.

PSLMC was created by Executive Order No. 180, which provides the guidelines for the exercise of the right to organize among government employees. Its task is to implement and administer the provisions of said executive order.

CSC, as Secretariat to the Council, said that lowering the percentage of membership requirement aims to encourage government employees to self-organize. (PNA) vcs/JCA
