If there is really justice in this land, this victory should be seen as one not only for our colleagues in TAG – for whom it is well deserved – but for all workers, in the media and other industries, who have suffered for decades under the onerous yoke of contractualization.
We call on all media companies to do right by their workers and accord them just and humane employment conditions.
It remains one of the supreme ironies that media workers, many of whom risk their lives to unmask the myriad problems our people and country face, are themselves victims of the injustices they report on.
We thank the NLRC for standing by the side of right on this case and exhort it to do so in all other cases brought before it.
