TUCP welcomes passage of service charge bill
Labor group Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP) on Wednesday lauded the enactment of Republic Act 11360, which mandates hospitality establishments to give 100 percent of the service charge to its frontline employees. The law will definitely improve the take-home pay of workers during these times when they badly needed cash money to daily cope with the rising cost of living, said TUCP president Raymond Mendoza in a statement. This measure will also boost employees morale to be loyal and improve productivity to the company. This will also improve the quality service employees render to customers, he added.

DoLE pushing ILO job safety resource for young workers
THE Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) said it launched a campaign to educate young workers on occupational safety and health (OSH), because that segment of the labor force is deemed most vulnerable to workplace hazards. In a statement, DoLE said Undersecretary Ciriaco Lagunzad III on Wednesday launched in Makati City during the launch of the Youth4OSH Communication Platform, an interactive resource on OSH practices introduced by the International Labour Organization (ILO). We at DoLE are working full time to reach out to the youth and empower them on concepts of OSH in the hopes of inspiring them to be future advocates and champions of work safety and health. What we need is a more creative and friendly approach in generating the public and youth support in building a preventative safety and health culture, Lagunzad said.

Labor blocks endo revisions
The labor group Trade Union Congress of the Philippines said it was not in favor of revising the vetoed and already watered down Security of Tenure bill to tailor fit the whims and caprices of business and employers. There should be no sudden, drastic shift in current labor relations in order to prepare all for the SOT reform, TUCP president Raymond Mendoza said. That is why there will be an industry by industry tripartite process to identify what jobs are regular and what can be outsourced through legitimate contracting, Mendoza said.
