Ailing Abra Power Coop Reverses Fiscal Deficit

Bangued, Abra (October 16, 2013) — The “health” of ailing Abra Electric Cooperative (Abreco), hounded by fiscal woes in the past, has shown considerable improvement.

After undergoing its rehabilitation plan since February, Abreco was able to reverse it financial deficit from an average net loss of 4.9 million monthly pre-rehabilitation status, general manager Loreto Seares Jr. said.

Now, the power cooperative has an average net income of 238,000.00 per month, “a remarkable difference of 4,711,704.97”.

Twice already, Abreco’s supplier cut off electricity in Abra after its alleged failure to pay its monthly dues in December last year and March this year.

The National Electrification Administration has also ordered Abreco to shape up or it will be constrained to take over the power distribution cooperative.

But jumping back to life, Abreco is continuously implementing management and administration policies to improve further the average net margin of the cooperative in order to realize much needed distribution infrastructure improvement and repair in the province.

Almost all 31 provinces in Abra, even in the hinterland barangays, are now energized.

The implementation of the rehab plan was so remarkable as it resulted to a complete turn-around financial situation for ABRECO in just a period of 6 months from the time it was implemented, beamed Seares Jr.

Abreco though is faced with legal problems after downsizing its workforce from 400 employees to 253 (147 permanent employees retrenched), Seares Jr. stood firm to their decision of complete implementation of the rehabilitation plan “as it’s the only way to save the cooperative.” The welfare of the more or less 40,000 consumers and the province as a whole is more important than the effect of the legal battle that resulted from manpower downsizing, he said. By downsizing, the cooperative cut cost by as much as 26 percent on its payment of its workers.

The rehabilitation plan was approved by the multi agency conference on February this year.

Government and private sector cooperation and support is still a factor to consider in order to maintain and improve further the cooperative, explained Seares Jr., while citing efforts by Abra rep. Ma. Jocelyn Bernos who is closely working and supporting Abreco in its desire to implement the much needed rural electrification program of the cooperative. “Our mandate of providing electricity to far-flung areas & unenergized sitios of the province as a response with the electrification program of the government will continue, Seares Jr. vowed.

The support of Pres. Benigno Aquino III, Energy sec. Carlos Petilla, PSALM, ABOITIZ, the NGCP, NEA and “inspired us to reach our goals as stated in the rehabilitation plan of the cooperative,” said Seares Jr.***Artemio A. Dumlao***

  1. I would like to take this opportunity to be the first to comment and CONGRATULATE GM Jun Seares and the ABRECO staffs for keeping up with the Rehabilitation Plan. Good job guys! I had so much faith he could do it! I know it was tough for them to keep up, but like I said, they have to do what it has to be done for a change…. collect payments on time and going after those who are falling 2-3 month behind in their payments. Happy to know Abreco is back to normal! Again, CONGRATULATIONS jUN!

    • ms omli, are you sure what this autor wrote is true. i dont think so. ask the employees of abreco. ask them if they get their salaries on time. the employees have to wait for the management to collect for their salaries because the coop has to pay first aboitiz because aboitiz will cut off power supply if abreco fails to pay on time. now you’re saying that gm seares is good. if truly the write up is true, why dont gm seares call for a general assembly to show the consumers what he has done. in ypur statement that syd vasquez could call an election first before the assembly is not valid. the sitting BOD and the gm could already call for a general assembly if they are saying that there is a turn around in its finances. and you ms omli could show what you say are holding showing that it was not gm seares who brought abreco to its sinkhole. i dont think the gm or his lawyers would give you papers that would implicate the gm. i think the papers they gave you were “doctored”.

  3. if the report is true they should support their claim with figures or even call for a general assembly and lay the coops’ financial statement to all its member consumers for them to scrutinize…….this report will remain garbage until such time they will present the ledger to its members thru general assembly. NAGDARAS MET GAYAM NGA MAIYALIS TI ALIPUSPOS MO MADAM……

  4. @Ringnoster & Kapitan Tutan….I was there and I went to meet with them at my own expense. I have all the records from the take over to the present. Kunak man Ringnoster no ti kayat mo ket makitinnulong ti pagsayaatan? Ita balimbing kunam manen? Di kay ket koma maragsakan ta nasolbar ti problema dan? The GM proved himself to everyone he did it! He laid his Rehab Plan and I myself thought he might not be able to do it but I he did it? So what’syour problem?

    • Kasano nga dika maawagan ti balimbiing ket mabasbasak met ti atakar mo ti Abreco nga iramraman mo pay ni Gov Takit. Tatta ibagam nga sika ti nangtrabaho? Pwe ! Banisaw ka!

      • Idi sakbay nga na meet ko ti Abreco, wen saan ko nga libaken nga adu ti negative comments ko based ti sao sao. Practical nga comments ti naibagak? Refer to all my previous comments Ringnoster diay AE2013. I did not condemn him in anyway. Kunak, I will do my own research which I did and I met with him and his staffs personally including with the BOD President. Everything was laid on the table. I met with the Office of Sec. Petilla, NEA, & CDA. I got all the records filed by ABRECO with the authorization of their legal Department. I did not make as yet my findings until I make sure they are able to perform what was promised in the Rehab Plan and until I met with someone to help me assess my findings. I have to be very careful because there’s gonna be people to be hurt once I make my report. It is a lot of thinking and decision making as to how I would present.

        But I assure you, that GM Seares is a good manager.He has a good heart. Part of the problem was that he was torn between politicians, friends, relatives, consumers and it was driving him crazy…..and most of all, he took over a debt-ridden cooperative.

        You will be shocked if I make it in the open what they called…”the best kept secret of Abreco”. Like I said, until I meet with this someone to help me assess all the records and findings I have, that I won’t divuldge any information.

        Ti la indiak kinayat kaniana…he wasn’t on time when it comes to paperworks. We were always rushing and he don’t return calls right away and most of all…..it broke my heart and CDA’s that we’re not able to meet with him before I flew back to the US…..no goodbyes and I haven’t spoken to him since then.

        • Adu man la unay ti agclaimen nga isu da ti gapu na nga mayat manen ti Abreco kasla ken Omli nga agbibisin. Agpayso nga nagadu ti post mo diay AE2013 agraman aramidem. Puro awan resulta na. Newspapers and radio broadcasts were saying that through the mediation of the Governor if Abra is the reason why Abreco was given a chance. Mabasbasa pay idi hga pabasolen da ni Gov. Gapu ta isuna kano ti nangipuesto ken ni Seares dita Abreco. The truth is ” namamangka ka sa dalawang ilog Omli, Seares or Luna?

          Posted by Ringnoster | October 17, 2013, 7:34 am
    • ms omli…..as you have stated in your post that you have all the records of gm seares starting from day one of office to present……would you mind posting it here for the sake of my fellow member-consumers the updated financial statement and let them assess the real status of the cooperative? YOU CAN’T CONVINCE US TO BELIEVE UNTIL SUCH PROOF IS LAID…..REMEMBER NUMBERS DON’T LIE!

  11. Madi met naputputdan ti Abra nga nabayagen saan ketdin? Doesn’t that prove that they met the requirements of NEA ? The only question I have now is if ABRECO is under NEA or CDA? I am confused as I have no contact with GM Jun since our last meeting.

    GM if you’re reading our comments, please check your email. Thanks.

    • it is still under the cda but once abreco fails to pay aboitiz on time and power would be cut-off, then nea would automatically take over abreco. i thought you knew of the conditions that aboitiz and secretary petilla gave gm seares. it seems that gm seares had taken you awed by his demeanor. that is his style, if he knows or is faced with people with caliber, he acts like a sheep. but to tell you madam, i know the guy, he is his mothers son, if you get what i mean.

Pettila’s office and Aboitiz. He listened to me and that’s what I liked about him and the rest of the staffs. Diniskarte mi amin ti panagsolbar ti problema and I am happy he succeeded in following through his Rehab Plan. Like I said again before, whatever he does in his personal life is non of our business. Diskarte amin ti panagbiag dayta. As long as
      Abreco is providing the electricity without interruptions is good for me.

    • Miss Omli, you have the courage, the wisdom and enormous energy which most bloggers don’t posses. You are really a Gabrela Silang caliber. But I noticed that you are wasting your precious energy entertaining worthless comments. Sorry, but this is no good for the kind of woman of your status. I suggest, that you focus on issues on matters on how to liberate our dear province from its shameful image as a home of barbaric leaders, tempered to kill withou conscience just for power and money. The Scripture warns ” Don’t throw your jewels to the pigs, they just trample it ”
      I suggest further for you to use your precious time searching for deserving candidates for 2016, like dr Glen Banez, atty. Alcantara, ‘ Bodowan’ to be with you in our fight to eradicate the ugly image of Abra long governed by undeserving leaders. Please, please and please, conserve your energy for our province sake, you gain nothing by wasting your time confronting people who are not within your vidions and purpose in life. How I wish Pedro Abrenio would change his mind to return in this forum to help provide the light needed in Abra to ‘ drive away the long prevailing darkness’.

  21. abreco lost a case at NLRC (National Labor Relations Commission) under the DOLE(Dept. of Labor and Employment) because of the illegal dismissal of 14 employees (there were more but were afraid to complain).NLRC CASE NO. RAB-CAR O2-0054-13, NLRC CASE NO. RAB-CAR 03-0077-13 AND NLRC CASE NO. RAB-CAR 04-0111-13. Abreco was commanded to re instate these 14 employees and pay their back wages amounting to P1,575,627.53++ and the GM of abreco to pay in his personal capacity a total of P700,000.00 for moral and exemplary damages.this means 50,00 each complainant. in the same decision, and I quote, “the retrenchment program including re-assignements made in the course is invalid. The complainants shall be reinstated status quo ante their re-assignment without loss of seniority rights and privileges and shall be paid full back wages”
    on october 10, 2013, the GM of abreco wrote to the 14 complainants in a memoradum no. 66-201 stating and I quote, ” Based on the Notice of Decision/Resolution/Order received from the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC), you are hereby reinstated effective 10 October 2013. You are hereby directed to report to the undersigned. Your compliance is hereby enjoined.” Such memorandum were mostly received by most of the complainants on the afternoon of October 18, 2013.
    on reporting for duty of 10 of the 14 complainants and after being ignored by the GM, the GM signed Memorandum No. 69-2013, assigning all of them as FIELD COLLECTOR in different sub-offices of abreco. and let me quote the contents of the memorandum, “in the exigency of service, you are deputized as FIELD COLLECTOR at La Paz Sub-Oficce/Dolores Sub-Office/Pilar Sub-Office/Manabo Sub-Office every collection period effective immediately.”
    The complainants are of different positions before they were illegally retrenched. one compainant is the Budget Officer II, another is an MRB Specialist, one is a meter reader, one is a security guard for a long time, one is a lineman, a staking foreman, chief of the motor pool, warehouse clerk, electric distributor, planning assistant, teller, administrative supervisor, and an AISA head.
    now ms omli tell me if your GM is a good manager. does this not show that GM seares is nothing but an addict that thinks that abreco is his own.Now tell me that he is good. ikaw na lang ata naniniwala kay jun seares.
    and oh, wait for the forthcoming warrant of arrest of GM seares et al for violation of the SSS law and others, bailable but with so much that he will again take from the coffers of abreco.
    now ms omli its your turn to defend jun seares.

    • its now time for you to show what your “papers” are. ms omli kaya ka pala paikutin ni jun seares lang. sAYANG. marco bautista is awaiting your revelations. hehe i hope na ma defend mo sarili mo against the mayor-lawyer of san juan in your allegations that jun seares was not the one who put abreco in this sinkhole, now what ms omli? show your evidence. kung totooo sinasabi mo, i will kneel infront of you, and even let jun seares kill me without any case, pero pag mali ka kaya mo ba gawin the same hehe, ms omli

      • Adda kad met maipakitana, no di la sar-sarita. Ti pagaaamok ketdi a ket ag-balimbing manen. Wenno iyaw-awanna manen ti topiko babaen ti pannaki-apana. Am-ammon ti “modus-operandi” ni COMLI.

  22. i am quite disturbed of the silence of ms omli of my posts,i think she’s not really investigating the matter. i think she has no evidence as she avers. she’s just another paid defender of jun seares. hehe. i hope not. but she has to show that she’s not.
    we have laid our cards but up to now she has not. and by the way, who is the author of the aforementioned article. He is not even known to local media. and to add to that, there are no 31 provinces in abra as dumlao the author wrote, there are 27 municipalities and 303 barangays in the province of abra. this only means that this dumlao is fabricating lies and media hype for jun seares, the question is fFOR HOW MUCH DUMLAO?
    the writer is nothing but a payed media practitioner who is payed by the people he mentioned to be good for the people of abra. JOY BERNOS? what is her role? did she pay the debts of abreco with her personnal money or is it the “utang” of abreco to her? TAKIT? i didn”t even see his name mentioned in the article. this means the writer is for the camp of bernos and dominic valera. the same people who rob the province hahaha. ang tagal naman ng karma.
    kawawang abreno, tayo na lang ang mag suffer for voting these people in. we deserve the leaders we vote for or let me just simplify it, we deserve the leaders that bought us, that excluding me

    • excellent analysis on the 31 municipalities, MD. that alone got me thinking hmmm… maybe DUMBlao is a paid journalistic w/o any common sense. hope justice will prevail for those employees that were terminated without cause.

    • Mario, kasano nga sungbatan na ka Mario ni OMLI ket dina met ammo dagita information mo. Tayanuram la bga tayanutam, awan met gayam ammo na.
      Eric, sika met apay tallikudam tatta ni gayyem mo nga Omli? Maysa ka met nga Doble Kara. No uyawen ni Omli da Governor kada Jun Seares, Omli is the best. Tatta ta dinayaw na ni Jun Seares, forget what you read kunam ken Omli. Balimbing! Birds of the same feather fluck each other.

    • ms. omli, i heard and saw your post in fb, that you were misdiagnosed by your doctor in hawaii. thats good news. and i mean well. i am not personally doing this against you, but because of your defense of the crook manager of ABRECO. Get well so maam.
      on October 14, 2013, a resolution,was signed by, provincial prosecutor NESTOR S. TOLENTINO,, NPS CASE NO. I-06-INV-13A-00026 for violation of Sec 18,19 and 22 in relation to Sec 28(e) AND (f) of R.A. 8282. against LORETO P, SEARES, JR., DAVID GUZMAN JR et al. which stated and I quote, ” WHEREFORE,we find indictable, per express provision of law, respondents members of the Board of Directors of the Abra Electric Cooperative (ABRECO), including the General Manager who is himself an ex-officio member of the board.
      ms omli, is this the kind of person you believe in.
      Ms omli, if there was really a reversal of the financial status of ABRECO, why is it that up to this day, the employees have not received their salaries for the second half of October.
      Again Ms Omli, show us your papers, hehe but i think you have none.The GM and the BOD would not have these problems if only they are doing what they are supposed to do and not steal from the coffers of the coop.
      There are other problems they have to face, this only the SSS law, what about the Philhealth, BIR and others, all non remittance.
      If you really have papers that say otherwise, then, it is your time now MS OMLI.
      If you really have these, then and only then that I kiss your ass.
      But I am really sure that you dont have these, are you willing to kiss mine?
