Contractualization and Casualization: Understanding the Real Issues

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Now this will be an interesting event to attend, as it tackles about the very controversial issue of contractualization - something all presidential candidates are promising to end when they get elected. It's happening today, May 4, 2016 at St. Luke's Auditorium at Bonifacio Global City.

Is ending contractualization possible when most companies, especially the huge ones, have been doing it for years. It defnitely saves them a lot because they do not need to offer extra benefits and privileges and it will be easier for them to replace or renew their manpower, as per the need, on a regular basis. However, the labor force gets very little assurance of their job as they could never predict how long they would have a source of income. Workers do not get that enough motivation to plan their future as it will be very unpredictable.

Below is their official announcement of the event:

"During the last presidential debate in Pangasinan seen on nationwide TV, there were very strong statements of denunciations and calling for the abrogation of DO 18-A, as well as promises of ending the practice of contractualization by presidential candidates once they are elected. 

The labor front is now rejoicing as practically all presidential aspirants swear that they shall end the practice of CONTRACTUALIZATION soon as they take their seat as president. But can it really be done? Are you aware that all companies operating in our country, one way or the other, employ contractual employees? or find value in OUTSOURCING? 

Ironically, the next president of the Philippines swear to high heaven that he/she will stop this practice? 


Former Undersecretary of Labor, Past PMAP president and a former Head of big local or multinational conglomerates such as San Miguel and Pepsi, ATTY. JOSEPHUS JIMENEZ dwell on this subject matter. 

In addition, the Secretary General of ECOP, ATTY. VICENTE LEOGARDO, shall reiterate ECOP’s POSITION ON CONTRACTUALIZATION AND CASUALIZATION. ECOP has always been against the exploitation of workers who have been hired as casuals or contractual workers on devious schemes now referred to as “555” or “ENDO – ENDO” to avoid “regularization”. 

But ECOP has always maintained a position on the issue of JOB CONTRACTING, LABOR CONTRACTING AND OUTSOURCING. 

Listen to ECOP’s Secretary General Vicente Leogardo articulate on ECOP’s POSITION. Attend the Special MGM on May 04, at the St. Luke’s Auditorium from 1-5pm."
