ALU-TUCP asks for P120 wage increase
THE Associated Labor Unions (ALU) is asking the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board for a P120 across-the-board wage increase. Atty. Nora Analyn Diego, ALU regional vice president for Region 7, and Ferdinand Jumapao, ALU membership recruitment and services department director, filed the petition, which cited the rising prices of goods. ALU officials pointed out that the RTWPB 7 granted a P13 increase effective Oct. 10, 2015 and another P13 increase effective March 10, 2017, which brought the minimum wage to P366 per day. These have been overtaken by increases in costs of goods and services. (EOB)

Labor group optimistic President will do his best to end short-term endo
A labor group remains optimistic that President Duterte would do the best thing once he reads the proposed Executive Order (EO) drafted by labor organizations addressing short-term contractualization, Endo, and the 555 work scheme prevalent in the country. Michael Mendoza, president of the Associated Labor Unions-Trade Union Congress of the Philippines-Nagkaisa (ALU-TUCP-Nagkaisa) believes that the President would fulfill his promise to end contractualization. We believe the President will never renege on his promise to end contractualization, Mendoza said in a statement yesterday. It is a marked promise critical to ensuring inclusive growth under his administration. Sadly, the President obviously has been misled or misinformed about the demands of workers, he added. The proposed EO from the Nagkaisa Labor Coalition, which is chaired by ALU-TUCP, recognizes that there will be exemptions to allow some form of contractualization.

Balanseng EO sa kontraktuwalisasyon, tiniyak ng DOLE
MANILA - Tiniyak ni Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III na binabalanse nila ang kapakanan ng mga manggagawa at ng management sa pagbalangkas ng isang batas laban sa kontraktuwalisasyon. We have to realize na in balancing the interest of labor and management, kailangang tingnan din natin ang viability ng negosyo. Kasi sabi namin, pag walang negosyo, walang trabaho, pahayag ni Bello. Sa panayam sa DZMM, Biyernes ng umaga, sinabi ni Bello na ang paggawa ng executive order kaugnay sa kontraktuwalisasyon ang kanilang pinagkakaabalahan sa ngayon.
