The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines hails the legal victory won by former talents of broadcast giant GMA network who the Court of Appeals upheld as regular workers.
We congratulate our colleagues in the Talents Association of GMA for courageously sustaining and winning the struggle for their rights and welfare.
Your unity and determination is an inspiration to us and all media workers seeking to improve their working conditions and economic welfare.
At the same time, we call on the owners and managers of GMA Network to do right by their workers and immediately implement the CA decision, and urge all media houses to end the onerous poliy of contractualization and engage their employees in crafting ways to improve their welfare.
