The National Anti-Poverty Commission-Formal Labor and Migrant Workers Sector (NAPC FLMWS) reiterates its call to stand for the rights of the ABS-CBN workers amidst the order to cease and desist to operate and the double burden they face because of the crisis of COVID-19.
“The sudden issuance of the cease and desist order by the National Telecommunications Commission is unjust and insensitive to the current plight of the workers,” NAPC FLMWS Council Member Dan Laserna said.
NAPC FLMWS Sectoral Representative Edwin Bustillos added, “The NAPC FLMWS urges the Congress, particularly the House of Representatives, to fast-track its legislative hearing on the ABS-CBN franchise and look at its impact to the workers and their families and those whose livelihood are dependent on it.”
