Acting Bacolod Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson said the city government task force will resume its inspection on gasoline stations once its “out of order” stickers” are ready and when the mayor returns before June 12.
The task force was created by Mayor Evelio Leonardia to check the accuracy of the calibration of pumping machines of gasoline stations in Bacolod City.
Sayson, however, said every time they inspect a gasoline station with fuel pumps found to have under-delivered, they cannot immediately padlock the pump that has not been properly calibrated, because, based on the law they have no authority to do so.

Members of the Bacolod City Industry Tripartite Council for Business Process Outsourcing/Information and Communication Technology have recently adopted a Voluntary Code of Good Practices, making it the first industry ITC in Region 6 to do so and the 35th industry VCGP to be signed and adopted nationwide, Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz said, in a press release yesterday.
Baldoz said the Bacolod City BPO/ICT hammered out the Code after several meetings between employers and workers groups in the industry as well as with the government sector.
"The primary goals of having a voluntary code are to foster smooth management-labor relations and promote voluntary compliance with labor and occupational safety and health standards, thereby enhancing continuous growth, productivity, and competitiveness of the industry in response to global challenges," Baldoz said.
