MANILA, Philippines – Inaasahan ng Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) na mararamdaman  na ngayon ng sektor ng paggawa ang pag-unlad ng ekonomiya ng bansa.

Ayon kay Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz, ang 7.8% GDP growth sa 1st quarter ng taon ay posibleng makatulong sa pagpapababa ng unemployment rate sa bansa at sa problema ng mga mangagawa sa informal sectors.

Ang informal sector workers ay mula sa hanay ng mga vendors, jeepney drivers, construction workers at agricultural sector workers na tinatayang nasa 15-milyon.

“Kung lalaki yung wage and salary, sa manufacturing then yan talaga yung may regularity ng income pati security ng job.”

Napagkasunduan kanina ng mga labor group at 23 ahensya ng gobyerno na tulungan ang mga mangagawa sa informal sectors.

Ayon kay Baldoz, bukod sa tulong na pangkabuhayan ay sisikapin din ng gobyerno na maging miyembro ang mga ito ng SSS, PAGIBIG at Philhealth.

“So yung kanilang need for medical insurance, yung kanilang need for employers compensation pag nagtatrabaho sila tapos nagkaroon ng aksidente, nasugatan o nagkaroon ng injury and worst minsan namamatay papaano yung naiiwan nila so ito yung benepisyo na magbibigay sa kanila ng ganitong protection.”

Target ng DOLE na matulungan ang 2.5 million na nasa informal sector sa loob ng tatlong taon. (Rey Pelayo & Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

OWWA warns recall of agency officials in Kuwait over negligence in Demafelis’ murder

by UNTV   |   Posted on Saturday, February 17th, 2018

MANILA, Philippines — Based on the Labor Department’s initial investigation, labor authorities confirmed that OWWA officials in Kuwait failed to act on the case of Joanna Demafelis, the Filipina worker who was found dead inside a freezer in her employer’s home.

In fact, OWWA Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac, Friday, confirmed that OWWA officer Maria Sarah Concepcion was already recalled following orders from Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III.

“[Maria Sarah Concepcion] was ordered recalled by the Secretary. When Concepcion comes home, there will be a deeper look into this. And there were three communications sent to the welfare officer in Kuwait.  To say the least, they were not acted upon. That is our findings so far and that’s the reason for her recall,” said the Owwa administrator.

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) added that there are still other agency officials who are likely to be recalled soon or be relieved from their post once proved that they have been negligent in providing a solution to the increasing number of abuses and murders against Filipino workers in the said gulf state.

“There will be more recalls of our officials there as we go along with our investigation,” said Labor Undersecretary Jing Paras.

OWWA is now looking into other cases of murder against OFWs by their employers in Kuwait.

Meanwhile, regarding his meeting with Kuwaiti officials concerning the murder of Demafelis, Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano assured that the Kuwaiti government has expressed its commitment to help in the pursuit and capture of the suspects.

“They said outraged ang gobyerno nila, gagawin nila ang lahat (They said their government is outraged and promises to do everything they can)to bring the accused to justice . Iyong kaniyang  (Demafelis’) death is very tragic but will also be a rallying point for all of the government agencies to be more aggressive abroad in helping our OFWs be protected and also dito (here),” said the foreign affairs secretary. — Aiko Miguel | UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines — The overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) taking a vacation in the Philippines have been allowed to return to Kuwait.

According to Bureau of Immigration spokesperson, Atty. Antonette Mangrobang, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has directed the agency to allow returning OFWs to go back to the Arab nation.

However, the deployment ban on new OFWs remains in effect.

Filipinos with short-term and non-working visas are now also allowed to go back to Kuwait.

“Yung dati nang nagtatrabaho doon tapos umuwi lang dito either nagbakasyon or whatever pero balik-manggagawa po. Pero yung mga first time na mga newly-hired, hindi po talaga sila papayagan,” said the labor spokesperson.

(Those who are already working there and are now in the Philippines either for vacation or whatever, they are allowed to go back. But as for the newly-hired, they will not be allowed.) — UNTV News & Rescue

SSS squabble cited as reason behind non-renewal of term of top execs

by UNTV   |   Posted on Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque

MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte will not tolerate squabble in the board of Social Security System (SSS).

Presidential Spokesperson Secretary Harry Roque said that this is the reason why the president did not extend the term of Amado Valdez as chairman, and Jose Gabriel “Pompee” La Viña as commissioner of SSS.

Both served on a hold-over capacity and their term expired on June 30, 2017.

“I think the president wants them replaced because he thinks SSS will be more efficient if there is no squabble among the board [members] of SSS,” said Roque. — UNTV News & Rescue
