first_imgA DOCTOR and 10 other outsourced workers in Sogod and Danao District Hospitals are asking Cebu Gov. Hilario Davide III to compel their agency to grant them work benefits.In a letter to the governor, Dr. Francisco Dayak and 10 others hired by 5 Stars Amalgamated Manpower and Allied Services Inc., said the agency has not released their 13th month pay for 2103 and other benefits.ADVERTISEMENT They said they have been working in district hospitals since April 2013 and have been denied their compensation for three months, from September to November by their agency.“We have been working for many months and have been denied our compensation for three successive months and yet we continued to work because we do not want to compromise the health of our people especially the poor in the province,” said their letter dated Dec. 31, 2013.FEATURED STORIESNEWSINFOSenate to probe Tolentino’s ‘novel legal theories’ on oral agreementsNEWSINFOLocsin wants to drop ‘visas upon arrival’ privilegeNEWSINFOPasig to sue 6 enforcers for extortion“We, as health providers, did our duties in spite of the nonpayment of our salary.
