Frontliners, not a priority at UnionBank

WHILE MANY commercial establishments in Zamboanga City have priority lanes for frontliners, the UnionBank of the Philippines branch along Mayor Jaldon Street has none.

The bank’s security guards said frontliners are treated as ordinary customers and have to line up or wait for their turn. This was the complaint made by a female media frontliner who went to the bank on Monday to deposit money.

“While other banks and commercial establishments, including malls and supermarkets and utility firms are prioritizing frontliners, and sad to say UnionBank isn’t,” she said. “We are always working against time and a little consideration for the work we do is big appreciation, but apparently this does not apply to UnionBank.”

She cited the good practice of the Bank of the Philippine Islands which gives priority to all frontliners.

Even at KCC Mall de Zamboanga Supermarket and Zamboanga City Electric Cooperative and its payment centers, including at CityMall and Watsons, among others, always give way to the frontliners in respect to their dangerous work and contribution to the community and public service. (Zamboanga Post)
