NUJP on the closure of Interaksyon
Posted by Jani Arnaiz, Chief Editor on January 19, 2018, 8:40 am
January 19, 2018
 
It is with sadness that the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) learns about the impending closure of Interaksyon.com, the TV5’s news website.
 
At least 20 of our colleagues stand to lose their jobs, joining hundreds of other journalists and media workers who were terminated by other media outfits due to “right-sizing,” a euphemism used to rob employees of their right to security of tenure for the sake of companies’ finances.
 
In early 2017, TV5 also axed more than 100 employees allegedly to cut company’s losses. Management, however, did not show any proof to support its claims.
 
Just recently, the CNN Philippines also retrenched more than 90 employees.
 
Journalists and media workers are treated as disposable resources. Those who do not belong to any union — the talents, correspondents, consultants — are the most vulnerable. Many of our colleagues do not receive benefits such as SSS, Pag-Ibig, Philhealth, and 13th month pay.
 
The worrisome labor situation of our colleagues continues to worsen at a time when the current administration is hell-bent in discrediting the Philippine media, at a time when the administration is spreading too many lies. Interaksyon.com would be one credible voice lost in a sea of deception. 
 
We have no choice but to strenghten our ranks and defend the truth and our profession.
