The NUJP is one with Mr. Robin Padilla in deploring labor only contracting. But if in issuing such challenge he means to agree with the current moves to shut an entire media company down, that is when we disagree.

Doing so may be likened to sinking an entire ship, bringing the entire crew and passengers down along with it, rather than compeling its owners and captain to do right by everyone.

That is why we also challenge government to make contractualization and all its iterations absolutely illegal as the President repeatedly promised in the past. The millons of contractual workers and the NUJP are still waiting.
