Manila, Philippines – Nanawagan si Deputy Speaker Vilma Santos-Recto para sa mabilisang pagpasa ng inilatag na Eddie Garcia law na naglalayong masiguro ang kaligtasan ng mga manggagawa mula sa entertainment industry.
Malakas aniyang sinusuportahan ang “Eddie Garcia Act” (House Bill No. 181, o The Actors’ Occupational Safety and Health Standard Bill).
Samantala, nagpakita rin ng suporta si Directors’ Guild of the Philippine (DGPI) board member Carlitos Siguion-Reyna.
“I come from a producing family, but I also direct and now I’m an actor. I am in full support of the safety concerns,” the director said. “The DGPI would want to be part of the technical working group moving forward these bills. To balance the concerns, I’d like to hear from the production companies how these working hours will impact the capability of producers and how it will affect the number of productions since we’re talking about workers’ welfare,” aniya.
