Vice Ganda, ipi-feature sa Reader’s Digest!

BLIND ITEM: SINO itong young actor na hindi naman pandak, pero may tsismis sa kanya tungkol sa pag-aari niya.

Naikumpara ng isang magandang young actress ang guwapong young actor sa current dyowa nito. Sabi ng girl, “Ang liit ng pototoy niya and surprisingly, ‘yung sa dyowa ko ngayon, ang daks!

“Eh, ‘di ba, ‘pag nagpipiktoryal ang dyowa ko, walang kabukol-bukol? Pero mare, kalokah. ‘Pag nagalit, super laki. “Walang sinabi ‘yung ex-boyfriend ko na susupla-suplado na parang untouchable ang drama, pero ang liit naman ng pototoy.

“Na-disappoint nga ako, eh. Kailangan ko pang uminom kahit konti para alam mo ‘yon! Makaramdam man lang ako na gusto kong makipag-anuhan sa kanya?”

Ganon? Eh, ‘di sama tayo nang sampu diyan? Ha-ha-ha!

TILA DESIDIDO NA nga ang aming kumare na pasukin ang magulong mundo ng pulitika, kaya ngayon pa lang, bubunuin niya ang apat na taong kurso na Public Administration para kahit paano, may alam na siya.

Pagdating sa kawanggawa, kami na mismo ang nagsasabi kung gaano ka-generous si Ai-Ai de las Alas.

‘Pag sobra pa ngang naaawa ‘yan, hindi pa niya mapigilan ang kanyang luha. Teka, saan naman tatakbo si Ai-Ai at anong posisyon? Well, dinig namin, pangarap ni Ai-Ai na maging Ate Vi someday, kaya malamang maging mayor ng Calatagan, Batangas ang kanyang targetin. Pero kukumpirmahin muna namin ito kay Ai-Ai, kaya ‘wag muna kayong maniwala, ok?

NU’NG UNA AY hindi pa makapaniwala hanggang sa makaharap na ni Vice Ganda ang correspondent ng Reader’s Digest. “Mama, tinanong ko talaga ‘yung nag-iinterbyu kumbakit ako.

Ang sagot niya, limang komedyante ang pinagpilian at unanimous na ako ang gustong i-feature sa Reader’s Digest.

“Nu’ng una nga raw, hindi nila ako mahanap, dahil ang ibinigay na pangalan sa kanya eh, Jose Marie Viceral at hindi Vice Ganda.

“Kaya nakakatuwa na ako ang ipi-feature nila sa September edition. Keri lang kahit hindi na ako maging cover, ‘no! Reader’s Digest ‘yan, ‘teh.”

At ang nakakalokah, bibili ng maraming kopya si Vice ‘pag lumabas na ang isyu, dahil proud na proud siya. Juice ko, kung nabubuhay lang si Graciano Lopez Jaena, baka i-feature din siya sa La Solidaridad.

Oh My G!

  2. MANILA — Johnny, not his real name, has been working as a cameraman for ABS-CBN’s current affairs program for 22 years. On June 18, he was told by security guards that he is among those who have been banned from entering the company premises.

    On June 16, Johnny, like many of his colleagues, was summoned to the human resources (HR) department. He was being offered a new contract, stating, among other things, that he has to work for eight hours a day for a salary of P25,000 (USD 548.84, based on peso exchange rate of 1USD=P45.55) and that he would be on probationary status for six months. He told the HR staff that he would think about the offer.

    “It [the offer] is insulting,” Johnny told Bulatlat in an interview, adding that another cameraman who is his junior has been offered P45,000 (USD 987.92) as salary. “I did not do anything wrong against the company. Why don’t they give me some respect?”

    Johnny is one of the 25 workers of the ABS-CBN internal job market (IJM) who found themselves jobless days after ABC-CBN chairman Gabby Lopez issued a deadline for the workers to accept the so-called regularization scheme.

    “Those who would not sign the contract will lose their jobs,” Lopez told the workers on June 15. “[You] either resign or find another job. That’s the only choice you have,” Lopez said. A video of Lopez’s speech was shown to the media by the ABS-CBN IJM workers’ union in a press conference on June 24.

    The offer, said union member and sound engineer Russel Galima, entails a waiver of all cases filed by the workers against the management, disregard of ther years of service, lower salary, among others. Antonio Perez, the union president, said the salary offered to workers is only one-third of their current salary.

    “If you don’t want it, we would not force you. ..just don’t convince other people not to accept our offer. Can you feed their families?” Lopez said further.

    The proposed salary is fixed, meaning workers could not demand for overtime pay and special pay on holidays. “We are always on call. At times, we were on coverage for three days. It is just not fair,” Johnny retorted.

    Like the rest of the workers, Johnny said he was not given a copy of the contract. “It was only discussed to me verbally.”

    Perez said only 100 of the 1,400 IJM workers were offered “regular” positions. “The contracts were a done deal. The management has already signed them and we were not even given copies.”

    Perez said contracts of workers have been co-terminous with the TV program. “We are regular in the programs but not in the company. The renewal of our contracts is the company’s discretion,” Perez said.

    Almost half of 100, mostly senior workers have been put on probation. Those in the post-production did not get any offer.

    Basic Labor Rights

    Perez said they are only fighting for their basic rights as workers. “We only wanted to have representation.”

    “It is not an abuse to demand what is stated in the law,” Perez said, stating that under the law, workers who have rendered at least six months of continuous work are entitled to become regular workers. “It is also our right to form a union,” he said.

    John Pail Panizales, technical director/VTR man and union member, said the management wants to crush their union.

    Panizales said their union was formed in March 2009. In November of the same year, the union filed a petition for certification before the Department of Labor and Employment-National Capital Region.

    “The company denied our status as employees,” Panizales said. The DOLE-NCR decided in favor of the management and the union filed an appeal to the Labor Secretary’s Office.

    Panizales believes the management’s offer for the so-called regularization aims to diminish their union membership. “It is simply union busting,” he said.

    Perez insisted that their identification cards and pay slips are proofs of their employment with the giant network. Citing the recent Supreme Court decision on Fulache vs. ABS-CBN Corp., Perez said they should be considered as regular employees, too.

    In the said case, the petitioners, all employees of the ABS-CBN Cebu, claimed they had rendered more than a year of service to the company and, therefore, should have been recognized as regular employees entitled to security of tenure and to the privileges and benefits enjoyed by regular employees. However, ABS-CBN Cebu allegedly considered them only as talents and not as regular employees.

    “The bad faith in ABS-CBN’s move toward its illegitimate goal was not even hidden; it dismissed the petitioners – already recognized as regular employees – for refusing to sign up with its service contractor. Thus, from every perspective, the petitioners were illegally dismissed,” the Supreme Court said in its decision dated January 21.


    “The management does not consider us as kapamilya, not even children out of wedlock,” Perez said.

    Galima said they have been treated like criminals. “Our pictures are posted at the gates,” he said, adding that they were denied access to the network’s compound and could not even talk to the HR to ask about the status of their employment.

    On the day of Lopez’s deadline, Galima said, they could not find their names on the schedule of programs and on the list of those who would be on a day-off. “Until now, we got no answers,” he said.

    Most of the 25 dismissed workers are breadwinners and have children. “Some of us are really devastated,” Perez said.

    “My children do not know yet that I am now jobless,” Johnny said tearfully. “I have not told them because I do not want them to get discouraged from pursuing their studies,” he said. Johnny has four children, three of whom are in college.

    Co-employees who expressed support to the dismissed workers have been wearing arm bands but are also being threatened of losing their jobs, Perez said.


    Perez also expressed fear that their case could set a dangerous precedent to the media industry.

    “This is an attack against media workers in general,” Perez said, adding that even rank-and-file employees can become contractual. “Other networks can follow suit,” he said. He said further that when it comes to the welfare of workers, rival networks are silent.

    Appeal to Noynoy

    Perez said they would try to seek the help of incoming President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

    “He said he wants more jobs for Filipinos, we hope we are included in those who will still have jobs. We hope we would not be added to the statistics of the unemployed,” he said.

    “He said he is against corruption. We hope we would not be victims of corruption in relation to the cases we filed before DOLE,” the union leader said.

    As for Johnny, he said, a good company should also maintain good standards for the interest of its workers. (
