SUBIC BAY FREEPORT — A former dish washer, a welder, and a warehouseman are among the
honorees in this year’s search for the Ten Outstanding Freeport Workers who will be honored for excellent performance and remarkable dedication and commitment to their respective jobs here.

Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chairman and Administrator Wilma T. Eisma said the winners represent the more than 120,000 workers from nearly 3,000 companies inside the Subic Bay Freeport who show dedication, discipline and competence—qualities that investors love among Subic workers.

She added.
