MANILA — The Commission on Appointments (CA) has confirmed the appointment of Labor and Employment Secretary Bienvenido Laguesma.

Bacolod City Representative Greg Gasataya, chairman of the CA panel, sponsored the committee’s recommendation to approve the appointment of the secretary.

According to Gasataya, Laguesma’s record as a contractual mediator and arbiter under the administration of former President Ferdinand Marcos Sr., and as Labor Department chief under former President Joseph Estrada is clean.

Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri also expressed confidence in Laguesma and said he is “very qualified” for the position.

Zubiri believes that now that the country is in the post-pandemic era, someone like Laguesma is needed to help the labor sector.
