More Pinoy workers honored in Taiwan
In yet another proof of the Filipinos’ competitiveness in the global job market, four overseas Filipino workers were conferred model employees by an industry association in Taiwan, the labor department announced on Sunday.
Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said the Philippines takes pride in the recognition bestowed on the OFWs by the Taiwanese Textile and Weaving Industry.
“We share the honor for their achievements. Their fete makes the Filipino nation even more proud,” Bello said.
In a report to the labor chief, the Philippine Overseas Labor Office ((POLO) in Taipei said Leonor B. Lubo, Kevin Jay C. Fillon, Raquel F. Dacusin, and Arniel S. Felizarta were chosen for their outstanding industriousness and commendable performance in their respective work.
The OFWs joined Taiwanese and workers from other countries who were presented with similar distinction.
Punctuality, obedience, and communication skills were also considered in selecting outstanding workers, POLO Taipei said.
Yai-Ming Zhang, Chairman of the Executive Director Board of the Taiwan Silk and Filament Weaving Industrial Association (TSFA) congratulated and awarded the citation to the awardees.
POLO-Taipei Labor Attaché Cesar Chavez, Jr. handed a cash award to each Filipino awardee.
The TSFA, a non-government organization, conducts the recognition annually to motivate workers to study for the enhancement of their skills and inspire them to improve the efficiency and quality of work.
In another development, 77 OFWs working in various companies in Taichung, Taiwan graduated in Baking and Photography training courses.
Labor Attaché Fidel Macauyag of POLO-Taichung said the training was conducted by POLO-OWWA in partnership with Dartwitz, a Taiwan Manpower Agency and two Filipino volunteer trainers.
Macauyag also told the OFWs of their rights at work and also reminded them to continue practicing health and safety protocols against COVID-19. ### POLO Taiwan/Taichung/gsr
Manggagawang Pinoy sa Taiwan, pinarangalan
Isa na namang pagpapatunay sa kagalingan ng Pilipino sa merkado ng paggawa nang parangalan ang apat na overseas Filipino worker (OFW) bilang modelong empleyado ng industry association sa Taiwan, pahayag ng labor department nitong Linggo.
Sinabi ni Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III na ipinagmamalaki ng Pilipinas ang parangal na iginawad sa mga OFW ng Taiwanese Textile and Weaving Industry.
“We share the honor for their achievements. Their fete makes the Filipino nation even more proud,” wika ni Bello.
Sa ulat sa Kalihim ng Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) ng Taiwan, napili sina Leonor B. Lubo, Kevin Jay C. Fillon, Raquel F. Dacusin, and Arniel S. Felizarta dahil sa kanilang kasipagan at mahusay na pagtatrabaho.
Kasama ng OFW ang mga Taiwanese at iba pang manggagawa mula sa ibang bansa na nakatanggap ng parehong parangal.
Isinaalang-alang din sa pagpili ng katangi-tanging manggagawa ang oras ng kanilang pagpasok sa trabaho, pagiging masunurin at kakayahan sa pakikipag-usap, ayon sa POLO Taipei.
Binati at iginawad ni Yai-Ming Zhang, Chairman of the Executive Director Board of the Taiwan Silk and Filament Weaving Industrial Association (TSFA) ang parangal sa mga katangi-tanging manggagawa.
Pinagkalooban ni POLO-Taipei Labor Attaché Cesar Chavez, Jr ng cash award ang mga pinarangalang Pilipino.
Isinasagawa kada taon ng TSFA, isang non-government organization, ang parangal sa mga manggagawa para mahimok ang mga ito na itaas ang kanilang kasanayan at maging inspirasyon para mas paghusayin ang kalidad ng kanilang pagtatrabaho.
Sa iba pang pangyayari, 77 OFW na nagtatrabaho sa iba’t ibang kompanya sa Taichung, Taiwan ang nagtapos ng kursong Baking at Photography.
Ayon kay Labor Attaché Fidel Macauyag ng POLO-Taichung, ang pagsasanay ay isinagawa ng POLO-OWWA sa pakikipagtulungan ng Darwitz, isang Taiwan Manpower Agency at ng dalawang Filipino volunteer-trainer.
Ipinaalam din ni Macauyag sa mga OFW ang kanilang karapatan sa paggawa at pinaalalahanan na patuloy nilang sundin ang health and safety protocol laban sa COVID-19. ### POLO Taiwan/Taichung/gsr
