IRIGA City, Camarines Sur: Partido Galing at Puso presidential candidate Grace Poe on Friday promised to put an end to the unfair labor practice of some employers that deniessecurity of tenure guaranteed by the Constitution.

Speaking to supporter here, Poe said that if elected, she will not only create more jobs for the people but will also put a stop to “endo,” a colloquial term for “end of contract” or when the six months contract of an employee ends.

Contractualization policy is being abused by employers to enable them to circumvent the labor laws and deny workers from attaining regular employment and security of tenure.

“Kaya pag ako ay naging Pangulo dahil sa aking nais na matulungan ang ating mga kababayan ay sisiguraduhin ko na mahigit isang milyong trabaho ang malilikha natin taon-taon at titigilan na natin ang ‘endo’ [As President, I will ensure that one million jobs will be generated and we will stop the practice of end of contract],” Poe said.

As for her promise of making quality education more affordable and accessible, Poe said she will support the extension of the University of the Philippines (UP) system in Bicol because there are many bright minds in the province.

Since she started in public service, the senator said she has been surrounded by bright minds from Bicol.

Four of the six vice presidential candidates are from the region. Her running mate, Senator Francis Escudero, is from Sorsogon province.

The University of the Philippines is recognized as the premiere state university in the Philippines and ranks among the best in Asia. The UP system has 15 campuses all over the country and over 50,000 students.

If Poe wins, her “Gobyernong may Puso” will allocate 20 percent of the national budget for priority social services, which include education.

Under a Poe presidency, indigent students will no longer pay tuition in all state universities and colleges. Should they wish to pursue college education in a private institution, the government will give them vouchers or grants under the “study now, pay later” scheme.

Poe said this is part of her commitment to fully implement the Unified Student Financial Assistance System for Tertiary Education (UniFAST) Law, which seeks to harmonize all publicly funded national government programs for scholarships, grants and student loans.

This ensures that all Filipino students are given equitable access to quality education.

  1. para na rin sinabi ni Grace Poe na ibuto nyo si Duterte, dahil lahat ng plano ni Duterte kinopya na…..at bakit matakot mawalan ng trabaho ang mga newly graduates kung matino ang magpalakad naka latag na lahat ang plano kasama na ang mga consequence at anong mga gagawing plano para di aabut don….

  2. Naku pra lang may masabi kinopya tuloy c du30!kelan kpa ba mag karuon ng sariling plano?lahat n ata nang narinig ko ky du30 ngayun gagawin m rn?nag papakita lng na kulang k tlaga s plano at experience

  3. Napakagandang balita ito para sa ating mga kapwa na manggagawa na pareho lang ang ginagawa kumpara sa mga regular, pareho ang pagod, pareho an oras ngunit iba ang benepisyo at sahod ang nakukuha. Sa plano na ito ni Grace Poe, maraming pamilya ang matutulungan dahil hindi na nila kailangan maghanap ng trabaho halos every 6 months. Sana talaga ay masuportahan si Grace Poe upang mapatupad niya ito.

    • Arteopatrick on

      May maganda at negatibong epekto ito. Mag-isip muna tayo at timbangin ang sitwasyon.

      Sa mga mga newly hired at contractual, kailangan nyo itong ipag-bunyi dahil stable na ang trabaho nyo.

      Pero sa mga walang trabaho at newly grad, mas mahihirapan na kayong maghanap ng trabaho. Kokonti na kasi ang job vacancy ng mga kompanya, at magha-hire lamang sila kung may nagresign silang empleyado at kung nag-expand ang kompanya.

      Imagine kung lahat ng empleyado ng BDO ngayon ay gagawing regular. Sa mga walang trabaho at nag-aambisyong mag-apply dito, magkakaroon lamang kayong chance mag-apply kung may magreresign o kaya naman may nagbukas na bagong branch.

    • Yeah right, this was pitched by Duterte even before the campaign period started. Grace can copy it all she wants but can she really implement it lime Duterte can. Remember that only Duterte isn’t indebted to big corporations.

    • hahahah nakakatawa to si grace poe… una 1st month they can fill secure tapos contractualisation puro ginaya kay duterte.desperada na para umangat ang survey
