Czarina Balba who’s better known as ‘DJ Chacha’ defended her company ABS-CBN saying that contractual employees of the Kapamilya network are still receiving benefits like regular workers.

Chacha was reacting to the speech of Deputy Speaker Rodante Marcoleta on Tuesday who claimed that ABS-CBN ignored the rights of its workers, saying that 8,500 out of 11,000 people serving the Kapamilya network are contractual or talents.

“ABS-CBN has not regularized its contractual workers and talents despite performing the functions of regular workers,” he said.

Hindi po maikakaila sa publiko na napakarami ng labor cases na hinarap at haharapin pa ng ABS-CBN. Ang masaklap pa dito, ni hindi nagbibigay ang ABS-CBN ng contribution sa benefits,” he added.

However, Chacha called the claims of Marcoleta as ‘fake news’ and proudly announced that she’s working as a contractual employee in ABS-CBN for 12 years, but receiving SSS and Philhealth.

“Hay. Fake news ng sobra. Sana nag-research. Mag-12 years na akong Talent/Contractual sa ABSCBN at may SSS, Philhealth, etc. May health card rin pati pamilya ko libre. Pinagsasabi mo, Ser?” Chacha tweeted.

In another tweet, Chacha said that she’s receiving Christmas and midyear bonus unlike other companies hiring contractual employees.

“Hindi ko need ipaglaban kasi kumpleto benepisyo ko. Talent kasi kami, three hours lang nagstay sa opisina. Hindi kami walong oras. Pero kumpleto benepisyo with Christmas & Midyear bonus. Oh ayan may pang-lunch ka na troll!” she said.

The DJ also pointed out that there’s a benefit of being contractual than being a regular DJ like some of her colleagues.

“Bakit ko ilalaban eh kapag talent ka after ng program mo libre ka na rumaket sa labas! Diba ang bongga? Contractual pero kumpleto benefits. Kayo bang mga troll may SSS, Pag ibig, etc?” Chacha remarked.

She also made fun of Marcoleta and compared his speech to a ‘school presentation’.

“Si Marcoleta, naalala ko yung Tito kong pag lasing na kung anu-ano tinatalak makapagpa-bida lang,” she said.

“Ano ba to’ school presentation? Susko! Kadiri. Ganito pinapasweldo ng tax natin?” she added.
