Duterte to new cops: Government will be with you as you fight SILANG, Cavite – “The government will be with you as you fight in the frontlines for that dream of a better tomorrow and safer Philippines”, was the promise President Rodrigo Roa Duterte made to the Masidlak Class 2017. President Duterte assured the newly graduated police inspectors that the government shall not abandon them as they fight in the frontlines toward achieving their dream of a safer country and a better future, during the 38th Commencement Exercises of the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) where the President served as the Guest of Honor last 24 March at Camp Castaneda, Silang, Cavite. In line with the government’s initiative to support the police personnel, President Duterte pledged to take care of their families. He stated that he understands that the number one concern of people like them, whose lives may oftentimes be in danger, is their children and families. “The government will ensure our policemen that their families will be taken care of, that is why we have increased the combat pay and incentives for our PNP uniformed personnel,” he said supplementary to his promise to tend their families. continued on page 2 PGC Celebrates National Women’s Month Addressing graduates of the Philippine National Police Academy, President Rodrigo Duterte reiterates a promise he’s made to cops: Do your job, and I’ll have your back DOLE to train displaced workers MANILA--The labor department is set to provide training and seminars to reshape and improve the skills of workers who may be displaced with the implementation of the new order on contracting and sub-contracting. Labor Undersecretary Dominador Say said DOLE, in partnership with other government agencies, are prepared to accept and train workers who will come from various industries to upgrade their skills and be qualified for other employment opportunities. “We believe that the new department order 174 can affect small and medium enterprises or businesses and some workers will be displaced. With this in mind, we have initially prepared to retool or reshape their skills if they are willing so that they may still earn income to support their families,” he said. The DOLE senior official also reiterated that all establishments, companies and employers should abide by the new order and observe general labor standards, particularly correct wages and benefits. Say said displaced workers should visit the nearest DOLE offices to avail of the livelihood and skills training provided by the labor department and by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). He said based on records, despite the displacement of workers, there are still larger manpower requirements on other sectors that need to be filled such as in the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), construction and infrastructure, and in the healthcare sectors. “We want to give them jobs and make them employable on other sectors. If there will be displaced workers, we have workforce allocation intended for them. However, it will all depend on their willingness and eagerness to learn skills and knowledge which are beyond their expertise,” Say added. Say also cited that displaced workers can also work overseas because the labor department continues to partner with the Japanese Government in drafting the Technical Internship Program which is expected to generate at least 35,000 jobs. “DOLE is in talks with the Japanese Government. As of now, we are drafting the IRR and they are looking forward for the immediate commencement of the program. There are thousands of job orders from Japan and they want Filipinos to fill the said positions,” he said. He also said that DOLE is crafting a Memorandum of Understanding with the Israel Delegation for the same reason of hiring Filipino caregivers. “The Israeli government are expected to hire 200 Filipino care givers per year and this number can increase through the years as their need arises. They also want Filipinos for their unique qualities, skills, hospitality, and care,” Usec.
