To End or Not to End? That is the Endo

To End or Not to End? That is the Endo.

Dahil sa ipinangako ni Digong, kelangang tuparin nya. Pero, paano naman ang investors at employers?

DTI: Matatakot ang mga Investors pag Tinapos ang Endo

Ayon kay DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez, “To insist that they all get hired directly by the company can only lead to lesser investments and lower job generation, which is what I fear most.

Inaasahan ng mga labor groups na pipirmahan ni Digong ang Executive Order na magbabawal sa pagpapatupad ng Endo on or before May 1. Ngunit, hindi naman malinaw kung ang version ng labor sector ang pipirmahang EO ni Duterte.

Ayon kay Employers’ Confederation of the Philippines President Donald Dee, “You cannot change the business model all over the world. [If] you want to dissuade investments, [if] you want people to turn away from the country, then you do it. But what they’re asking for does not make sense. It’s unfair.”

Pareho lang din ang posisyon ng Philippine Chamber of Commerce Industry, ayon sa Presidente nilang si Ma. Alegria Sibal-Limjoco.

Para naman kay American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines Senior Adviser John Forbes, “A modern economy requires flexible work arrangements. One size does not fit all, especially for SMEs (small and medium enterprises).”

Ayon naman kay Management Association of the Philippines Sub-committee on Labor Chairman Rico de Guzman, “The proposed ban on outsourcing is against the concept of free enterprise and is not necessarily prolabor, as it stifles employment growth in the economy.”

Ayon naman kay DTI Secretary Lopez, supportive sila sa improvement ng security of tenure ng mga manggagawa, ngunit maraming investors ang nagrereklamo tungkol sa walang katiyakang estado ng labor sector sa bansa.

Mas madali para sa mga investors ang pumunta sa Vietnam at Cambodia dahil sa mas mababa ang sahod ng mga manggagawa doon.

Ayon din kay Lopez, “Absent any new investments or expansion, then it would not matter anymore if we force direct hiring by employers because there is no new job to begin with.”

Binatikos ang mga Endo Proposals na “Anti-Employer”

Ayon sa Employers’ Confederation of the Philippines Chairman Edgardo Lacson, hindi kailangan ang bagong Executive Order dahil sa may mga mekanismo na nagpaparusa sa mga umaabuso sa contractualization, gaya ng Department Order 174. Ngunit, inamin din nya na kelangan ng istriktong implementasyon ng nasabing DO 174.

Ayon sa speech ni Lacson sa pagbubukas ng 39th National Conference of Employers, “Doctrinal ideology by the radical labor group that calls for a total ban on contract employment and absolute security of tenure, among many other anti-employer bills that aim to shutter businesses.”

Sinabi rin nya sa ECOP members na, “We will clean up our ranks but we don’t need government to push us to do what is right. We know what is right; we know what is just for our employees.”

Magsusumite rin ang ECOP ng draft resolution kay Duterte. Ayon sa resolution, “These disruptions and radical changes could result in both deplorable threats and incredible opportunities, and social partners must therefore adopt a welcoming perspective and engage in proactive dialogues that could strengthen industrial peace and harmony and eventually avert the ill effects of such radical changes and disruptions.”

Kung ano lang kasi ang maisipan ni Digong. Hindi pinag-iisipang mabuti. Sana kinunsulta muna ang mga concerned sectors bago pumutak!
