Government to put one-stop shop for retrenched ABS-CBN, NCR workers
By Prince Golez
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is putting up one-stop shop where displaced ABS-CBN employees can apply for jobs, Malacañang said Thursday.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III confirmed this to him during a telephone interview.
“Magkakaroon po siya ng one-stop-shop center para po sa NCR at para po sa ABS-CBN para makapag-apply po doon ang ma-re-retrench na mga empleyado ng ABS-CBN,” Roque said in a virtual presser.
“Magkakaroon din po siya ng job referral system baka magkaroon din po ng job fair. Ito ay para bigyan ng pagkakataon yung mawawalan ng trabaho sa ABS-CBN but it will be open to everyone hindi lang po sa ABS-CBN,” according to him.
On Wednesday, ABS-CBN said it would start retrenching employees on August 31 after the House committee on legislative franchises earlier reject the broadcast network’s application for a new franchise.
