Emergency pay sa mga empleyadong naapektuhan ng pagputok ng Taal isinulong

By: - 01/13/2020

NANAWAGAN si TUCP Rep. Raymond Mendoza na bigyan ng emergency pay ang mga empleyado na hindi nakapasok sa trabaho dahil sa pagsabog ng Bulkang Taal.

Sinabi ni Mendoza na dapat maawa ang mga employer sa kanilang mga empleyado na walang kikitain kapag hindi pumasok.

“In times of calamity, workers will be relying on their employers to show compassion and give them the wages that they expected to receive under normal circumstances. We have already seen instances of price gouging, with necessities being priced much higher than usual. How will our workers be able to protect themselves and their families if the No Work, No Pay scheme is retained? It is impossible for some to make it through the roads to reach their places of work,” ani Mendoza.

Nagpahayag naman ng pagkadismaya ang Gabriela dahil pinapasok pa rin umano ng mga business process outsourcing companies sa Sta. Rosa, Laguna, ang kanilang mga empleyado noong Linggo kahit na mayroong ash fall.

“We would like to remind BPO firms, as well as all businesses in the country that this is an occupational safety and health issue. According to Section 6 of the Occupational Safety and Health Law or RA11058, “The worker has the right of refusal to work without threat or reprisal from the  employer if, as determined by the DOLE, an imminent danger situation exists in the workplace that may result in illness, injury or death.”

Dapat umanong papanagutin ang mga BPO company na lumabag sa OSH.
