MANILA — Office of the Press Secretary Officer-in-Charge Undersecretary Cheloy Garafil visited the employees of PTV4 on Friday (14 Oct 2022) to check on their employment welfare and possible upgrade of news coverage equipment.
“Bumisita si OPS Undersecretary, Officer-in-Charge Cheloy Velicaria-Garafil sa PTV office sa Quezon City nitong Huwebes, Oktubre 13, para kumustahin ang estado at operasyon ng istasyon at alamin ang kapakanan ng mga kawani nito,” a post on OPS’s Facebook page said.
In the course of their conversation, Garafil learned from the PTV4 employees about some of their problems like the security of tenure, regularization of some employees, wage increase, benefits, and modernization of some facilities and equipment of PTV4.
Earlier, Senator Raffy Tulfo called for the salary increase of PTV 4 employees and asked Garafil to visit the station to know the situation of the office.
“Maganda po ‘yun kung makadalaw po kayo and then I would advise you po kausapin ‘yung matatandang empleyado doon,” Tulfo told Garafil.
Garafil answered, “‘Pag pumunta po ako doon, makikipagusap po ako sa kanila and titingnan po natin ang puwede nating gawin.” (ai/mtvn)
