These are two separate appeals by certiorari from the decision dated March 25, 1963 (G.R. No. L-21484) and the order dated May 21, 1964 (G.R. No. L-23605) as affirmed by the resolutions en banc, of the Court of Industrial Relations, in Cases Nos. 3450-ULP and 1327-MC, respectively. The parties, except the Confederation of Unions in Government Corporations and Offices (CUGCO), being practically the same and the principal issues involved related, only one decision is now rendered in these two cases.
The Agricultural Credit and Cooperative Financing Administration (ACCFA) was a government agency created under Republic Act No. 821, as amended. Its administrative machinery was reorganized and its name changed to Agricultural Credit Administration (ACA) under the Land Reform Code (Republic Act No. 3844). On the other hand, the ACCFA Supervisors’ Association (ASA) and the ACCFA Workers’ Association (AWA), hereinafter referred to as the Unions, are labor organizations composed of the supervisors and the rank-and-file employees, respectively, in the ACCFA (now ACA).
