Peter Tiu Laviña, spokesperson of Duterte, said that Carlos Dominguez III, another member of the team who heads the economic development cluster, had an audience with some businesses and labor groups in the country and thoroughly discussed issues and concerns on contractualization.
Laviña said that the consultations will continue especially when Duterte commences his administration by July of this year.
He stressed that not all of those consulted by the team concurred with the plan to fully ban contractualization. “There are other industries such as those in the household and agriculture sectors have piecemeal or “pakyawan” schemes of hiring workers,” Laviña said, calling such nature of hiring as “definite period employment.”
Laviña added there are existing laws in the country and administrative orders from the Department of Labor and Employment on contractualization that need to be reviewed.
He said that the consultations seek to come out with an acceptable formula from all sectors on contractualization.
Laviña said that Duterte objected contractualization “for the fact that many of our workers are not gaining skills when they are assigned to do a thing for five to six months and after that they are assigned another task or job. If they apply work abroad which requires two or three years experience, they cannot show anything because they are only allowed to work for such and such particular work for five to six months.”
This has become a loophole to prevent contract workers from becoming regular employees in the country.
