Cebu journalists mull case after Aksyon Bisaya closure

AKSYON Bisaya aired their last episode yesterday due to cost-cutting measures of TV 5. Reporter LEsley Caminade-Vestil said Aksyon Bisaya was dissolved but the reporters will still gather breaking news for their national broadcast. There was also no termination of services but an offer of separation of benefits.

Another TV5 staff, who requested anonymity, told Sun.Star Cebu they are thinking of filing a complaint against the management before the Department of Labore and Employment as they suspect the move of the management was done to avoid complying with President Rodrigo Duterte’s order to end contractualization. Downsizing meant TV5 management won’t have to hire them as regular employees.

It was so sudden that I feel for the employees. Glen Soco, TV 5 news anchor.
