Naglabas ng paliwanag ang Movie and Television Review and Classification Board o MTRCB hinggil sa mga apektadong workers sa ipinataw nilang 12-airing-day suspension sa programang It’s Showtime.
Lumabas kasi ang isyu na may mga manggagawa na nasa likod ng camera ang mawawalan ng ilang araw na kita sa sandaling mawala rin sa ere ang noontime show.
Sa inilabas na statement ng ahensya kahapon, October 1, sinabi nilang ang ibinigay na suspension sa It’s Showtime at ang kawalan ng kita ng mga arawang manggagawa ay magkahiwalay umanong isyu.
“The decision of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) to suspend ‘It’s Showtime’ and the ‘no work, no pay’ issue are two separate and distinct matters,” pahayag ng ahensya.
Wake up call na umano ito sa mga producers hinggil sa isyu ng contractualization ng mga empleyado sa likod ng camera.
“The suspension, in fact, underscores the broader and more pressing matter of contractualization within the entertainment industry. The issue deserves sincere attention from the producer,” saad nila.
“The practice by the Producer, or Management to not regularize their employees, even when a show has been airing live for six days a week, for over a decade, highlights a much bigger problem than the show’s 12-airing-day suspension,” dagdag pa ng MTRCB.
Nauunawaan daw nila ang saloobin ng mga maaapektuhang workers pero kailangan umano nilang ipatupad ang kanilang desisyon bilang parte ng kanilang mandato.
“We sincerely empathize with the hardworking individuals who will be affected once the suspension takes effect,” lahad ng ahensya.
“However, we believe that the inability of the management to provide regular employment should not impinge on the duty of the MTRCB to uphold its mandate in ensuring the ethical compliance of broadcasting content by any production company or television network pursuant to Presidential Decree No. 1986,” giit nila.
Nasa management naman daw ang huling sey sa kung anong adjustment ang gagawin nila sa kanilang programa.
“It remains the prerogative of the Producer/Management to suspend/sanction erring host/s as they deem fit, which has been the practice of other noontime shows, as hosts are beyond the jurisdiction of the MTRCB,” they concluded.
“The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) released a resolution dated 28 September 2023, denying the Motions for Reconsideration (MR) filed by GMA Network, Inc. and ABS-CBN Corporation,” pahayag ng MTRCB that day.
Kaugnay ito sa naging controversial na pagkain ng icing sina Vice Ganda at Ion Perez sa segment na Isip Bata noong July 25. Inappropriate daw ang ginawa ng dalawang host at real-life couple dahil may kasama silang mga bata sa nasabing segment.
“Said MRs sought relief from the Board's ruling dated August 17, 2023, regarding the July 25, 2023 episode of the live noontime television program ‘It's Showtime!’ Specifically, during the show’s ‘Isip Bata’ segment, in which hosts Ryan Bang, Vice Ganda and Ion Perez allegedly acted indecently or inappropriately in the presence of children, which is alleged to have violated Chapter IV Section 2 (b) (1) of the 2004 Implementing Rules and Regulations of the Presidential Decree No. 1986,” anila.
Pinaninindigan din ng MTRCB ang nauna nilang desisyon.
“In view of which, the Board’s Decision dated 17 August 2023 is affirmed,” pagtatapos nila.
Samantala, sa inilabas na pahayag ng ABS-CBN last September 28, tiniyak nilang patuloy na mapapanood ang It’s Showtime sa Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, GTV, at iba pang online platforms dahil hindi pa umano final and executory ang ipinataw na sanction.
Nagpapasalamat din umano sila sa unwavering love and support ng mga manonood sa kanilang programa.
