Pag-IBIG Fund is most trusted GOCC in 2021 Philippine Trust Index

UNTV News   •   December 1, 2021


MANILA, Philippines — Pag-IBIG Fund is the most-trusted government-run corporation according to a nationwide trust survey of key institutions in the Philippines.

This is according to the 2021 Philippine Trust Index (PTI), a nationwide survey by the EON Group that cuts across backgrounds to measure Filipinos’ trust in the government, the business sector, the media, non-governmental organizations, the Church, and the academe.

“We are truly honored to be included in the list of most trusted government agencies. The latest results of the Philippine Trust Index and our 9th straight unmodified opinion from COA show that we have fulfilled our duties during the pandemic while still maintaining the highest standards of transparency and integrity in our work. This is aligned with President Duterte’s vision of clean government with heart for service,” said Secretary Eduardo D. del Rosario, who heads the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) and the 11-member Pag-IBIG Fund Board of Trustees.

The 2021 PTI noted that “in terms of government agencies, departments that got the highest trust are those whose functions require them to remain engaged with the public, even during the pandemic such as online learning, finance regulation, loan assistance and aid distribution.”

The Department of Education earned the highest trust rating of 91% followed by Pag-IBIG Fund at 89% – the highest among GOCCs on the list.

“On behalf of all Lingkod Pag-IBIG, thank you for your trust, our dear members! As you know, we never stopped providing service even during the lockdown and community quarantines. Instead, we improved our digital assets so you can continue transacting with us online,” Pag-IBIG Fund Chief Executive Officer Acmad Rizaldy P. Moti said.

“We have proven that during this health crisis, you can always count on our Lingkod Pag-IBIG brand of service. And, while we have previously received awards and recognition, we are even more grateful that it is the public itself, the people we serve, that ranked us as the most trustworthy GOCC in the country for 2021,” he added.

State-owned APO Production Inc. employees request for salary hike

Marje Pelayo   •   March 15, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Rank and file employees of the APO Production Incorporated, a government-owned and controlled corporation, complained that they have not received any salary increases in eight years.

The Asian Productivity Employees Association, the bargaining group of APO’s rank and file employees, has written to the management about their concern about two weeks ago but they haven’t got any reply.

Alvin Gavilan, the president of the Asian Productivity Employees Association aired their claim of unfair treatment among employees especially when it comes to salary benefits.

“Hindi po pantay-pantay ang pagtrato sa mga empleyado. Samantalang iyong mga malalapit sa kanyang mga empleyado sa management panel ay binigyan niya ng increase. Samantalang kaming mga rank and file na maliliit ang mga sweldo, lagi po niya sinasabi sa amin na nakatali ang kanyang mga kamay,” he said of the management.

Around 140 workers of the Corporation echo the same concern.

The APO Production Incorporated prints sensitive government documents such as passports, as well as learning modules for students.

Gavilan said, what they are fighting for is their right considering the volume of work they have even at this time of the pandemic.

The group promised that their production will not be affected with their concern and they just use their break time to express their sentiments.

“Hindi naman po kami nag-i-strike (kundi) freedom of expression lang po,” Gavilan said.

UNTV is still trying to get the side of the management of APO Production Incorporated and the Office of the Presidential Communications Operations Office on the issue. -MNP (with reports from Rey Pelayo)
