Mr. Alex Marcaida, President of the PCSDS Employees Association is currently attending the 5th K4 National Convention at Grand MenSeng Hotel, in Davao City. K4 stands for Kalipunan ng mga Kawani sa Kagawaran ng Kapaligiran, a conglomeration of DENRs Regional employees Unions. Attendees are presidents and selected officers. This years’ theme is “Empowered K4 geared towards effective public service”. The convention runs from Aug. 12 – 14, 2015.
Gracing the opening program is no less than the Honorable Mayor of Davao City Rodrigo Roa Duterte who inspired the more than 80 delegates with his candid stance of proactive leadership and the advocacy towards empowering regions of the country by advocating federal form of government.
Will he run for the Presidency? Duterte neither denied nor confirmed, but left the audience to wait until the fight is on. As the spirit of unionism is at the helm, he believes in the power of unity in diversity.
As a new member of the DENR family, the PCSDSEA is yet to be formally affiliated to the K4 who warmly welcomed the possibility of having the PCSDSEA in their fold soon.
