Historical Background: FEWA and it's humble beginnings

Post by BLyTHe on Sun Mar 09, 2008 9:28 pm

The initial idea to establish an organization of Filipino EPS workers in Korea emerged sometime in the later half of year 2005 while Fr. Glenn Giovanni B. Jaron, MSP, and Rebenson B. Recaña and his fellow EPS workers were at Ilsan Labor Center facilitating the early cases of requests for release. They discussed about the increasing problems faced by the EPS workers and the wisdom of having an organization that will help address the problems.


Fr. Glenn, the tireless, venerable prime mover of Hyehwa-dong Filipino Catholic Community (HFCC), has been dealing with a myriad of problems and issues involving the Filipino migrant workers in Korea even prior to the implementation of the EPS Program that suddenly brought in hundreds of OFWs. In the Pastoral Center for Filipino Migrants or more commonly known as the Center, Fr. Glenn has both been the pastoral chaplain and effectively a voluntary liaison to Filipino migrant workers. With the advent of the EPS Program, all of a sudden the Center, had to accommodate the onslaught of EPS workers asking for help with their various problems that ranges from unpaid compensation to outright physical abuse. Thus, the idea of establishing an organization out of this new face of OFW’s came naturally and inevitably; both out of necessity and in reaction to the inherent imperfections of the program.

The idea finally took ground when Fr. Glenn brought it up with the members of the Justice and Peace Committee of the HFCC, the same Committee responsible for tackling the issues of migrant worker in general and has been assisting him in dealing the sudden surge of EPS cases at the Center. The visionary concept was to establish an organization of EPS workers that will empower them to be able to help themselves in addressing the many and different difficulties, problems and issues they encounter while staying as a migrant worker in Korea. The members of the EPS Adhoc Committee at that time were Nicolasito Marquez, Bonifacio Famis, Ariel Epino, Marciano Gonzales, Jr . and Rebenson Recaña. Sometime in November 2005, the adhoc committee finally formed a core group that made the ball rolling. New members came in, namely Glenn Rey Agad , Reynaldo Centeno, Jr., Nelson Valenzuela and a bit later, Romeo Faltado. For a start, it was then agreed that each member shall do his own research on how to draft the Constitution and By-Laws.

In December of 2005, it was decided by the HFCC Pastoral Council that the present group working on EPS matters shall be an independent Committee apart from the Justice and Peace Committee – its early affiliation. Thus, the group became both an independent working group for the establishment of an EPS organization and at the same time a Committee within the HFCC. It was also around this period that the recruitment process for membership to the to-be-established organization started.

Early in January 2006, working group member Glen Rey Agad submitted a logo design and a sample copy of a Constitution and By-Laws together with his own initial inputs thereof. Both has thereafter evolve to become an integral part of the organization’s personality.

On January 22, 2006, the EPS Adhoc committee passed a motion officially naming the organization as Filipino EPS Workers Association or simply FEWA. On the same occasion, with the explicit consensus of the body, the following were the FEWA ADHOC committee members: Nicolasito Marquez, Glenn Rey Agad, Bonifacio Famis, Nelson Valenzuela, Marciano Gonzales Jr., Reynaldo Centeno Jr., Ariel Epino, Romeo Faltado and Rebenson Recaña .

It was also on this meeting that the first formal deliberation on the preliminary draft of the Constitution and By-Laws was conducted. The proceedings thereof were documented on the first official minutes of the organization. In the same meeting, the date for Elections and Referendum of the Constitution was tentatively set.

By February, a working copy of the Constitution and By-Laws was already circulated and initiated among the members of the FEWA Adhoc committee and a comprehensive list of over a hundred pre-organization members, who themselves later became the founding voters and officers of the organization.

The first big step in the ultimate realization of FEWA as an organization happened in March 5, 2006 with the holding of the very first FEWA General Assembly. It was attended by Fr. Glenn Jaron himself and a representative of the Philippine Embassy in South Korea in the person of Vice Consul Juan “Jade” Dayang. The assembly became the forum for the first formal introduction of FEWA Adhoc committee to its founding constituents as well as a vehicle for the introduction of the official working copy of the FEWA Constitution and By-Laws.

Kahit hindi po ako eps ay taus puso po akong nagpapasalamat sa inyo(FEWA) dahil kayo po ang naging gabay,sandigan at proteksyon ng mga pilipinong eps dito sa korea. At higit sa lahat sa ating Panginoong Jesus na nagbigay sa atin ng kalakasan, pag-asa at ang kanyang buong pag-ibig sa ating lahat.

Good is good!
