Visayan Electric Co. (VECO) COO Anton Perdices and his team engaged in talks with Police Regional Office-7 Director Noli Taliño and other police officials to strengthen their partnership on police matters, specifically in helping solve the problem of illegal drug use.
Taliño commended the initiative of VECO in its support of President Rodrigo Duterte’s intensified all out-war against illegal drugs.
Even before, the power firm has been active in its zero-drug policy and has been maintaining a drug-free workplace. In March 2016, 211 VECO personnel in its Barangay Banilad, Cebu City, office, including on-the-job trainees and contractors, submitted themselves to a random drug test. All of the employees tested negative for drugs.
