“If we combined our talents and work together, we get more ideas, and better results. Two and two are not always equal to four; in teamwork they can equal to six or eight.” Regional Conciliation and Mediation Branch III Director Edgar G. Aquino said in his inspirational message before the management and workers of Sumi Wiring Systems Corporation during the Ka-Sumi Oath Taking Ceremony held on March 31, 2017.

Ka-balikat sa Sumi or KASUMI Labor and Management Committee was facilitated by RCMB III Supervising Labor and Employment Officer Rosanna C. Cruz on May 28, 2012.

The oath taking ceremony was attended by Sumi President Takeshi Morikawa, Senior Vice President for Manufacturing Takao Morita, Vice President for Production Conrado D. Hernandez, and Senior Vice President for Human Resource Administration Eric V. Mercado.

RCMB III Director Aquino officiated the oath taking of the LMC officers and members.

PEZA Zone Manager Idelmira P. Pestio also attended the event.

The LMC’s slogan, “KASUMI is incomplete without U and I,” as it embodies the good relationship between management and workers manifested through the success of their various activities and livelihood programs undertaken by the company.

The continuous expansion of SUMI is one proof that “Teamwork” paved the way of many fruitful years ahead.

“A harmonious relationship existing in every company is the hope and dream of the department. It’s a tough call, but being invited to this kind of event proves that the agency, the NCMB, is doing its job well,” Aquino said.
