    MANILA, Philippines — Inilalatag na ng Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) ang kanilang programa na layuning gawing ganap na propesyunal ang mga kasambahay.

    Ayon kay Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz, makakatuwang nila ang Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) sa pagbibigay ng training sa mga nais mamasukan bilang kasambahay.

    Ayon sa DOLE, dadaan sa training sa housekeeping, assessment at basic skills ang mga nais mamasukan at kung makakapasa ay tatanggap ng sertipikasyon.

    Ayon kay Baldoz, sakaling maisakatuparan ang programa, lalawak ang oportunidad ng mga kasambahay at maaari na rin silang makapagtrabaho sa ibang industriya.

    Nilinaw naman ni Baldoz na hindi na ire-require sa training ang mga may karanasan na sa pagiging kasambahay. (UNTV News)

    More than 200 drug surrenderers graduate from PNP’s rehab program

    by UNTV News   |   Posted on Monday, September 25th, 2017

    BATANGAS, Philippines — More 200 drug surrenderers who graduated from the SIPAG program of the Philippine National Police (PNP) have marched in Tanauan, Batangas.

    At least 204 individuals from the three barangays of Tanauan City, Batangas who were former drug dependents are now looking forward to a new life.

    They are among the first batch of surrenderers who have completed the three-month rehabilitation and reformation program in the province.

    The moral recovery and spiritual renewal, in particular, have been the focus of the program for their continuous reformation.

    Alongside this, they were also given a certificate of clearance so that they can be removed from the drug list of the PNP.

    TESDA is also willing to provide them training so that they can find jobs and be useful citizens of the community. — UNTV News & Rescue

    DOLE asks Senate to hear position on proposed 4-day work week

    by UNTV News   |   Posted on Tuesday, September 12th, 2017


    The Senate has set to tackle the proposed four-day work week after the Lower House passed the bill in the third and final reading.

    The Department of Labor and Employment, however, has expressed disagreement with the passage of the proposed four-day work week.

    In Kuya Daniel Razon’s interview with Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III on the program ‘Huntahan’, the Secretary said there’s no longer need to pass such law

    “There is already an existing Department Order No. 02 series of 2009. There is order of the Department of Labor allowing employees and the management to agree on a compressed work or a flexi work whatever their decision will be so there is already such agreement,” Bello said.

    Meanwhile, an occupational specialist said long hours of work especially when standing for a long time is required, have bad effects on health.

    “If a person does not move in a place or is stationary, you have stagnant posture, no movement of the muscles, no circulation of the blood, you have accumulation of all the acids and conditions that will lead to pain in the back and the legs,” occupational specialist Dr. Albert Asprec said.

    The working class, on the other hand, has mixed opinions on the matter

    “Maybe that’s better so one could have more time with his or her family . . . at least you can be with your family for a longer time,” said Edward Teves, a cook.

    “For me, you can have rest during eight hours of work. If the work week will be compressed to four days, you’ll have to work much during the four days,” customer service representative Victor Alcaide said.

    According to Secretary Bello, the Lower House did not consult the Labor Department before passing the bill. So the agency is appealing to the Senate to hear their position first before coming up with a decision.

    The Senate still needs a counterpart bill to have the proposed 4-day work week be passed into law. – Leslie Longboen | UNTV News and Rescue
