The Trade Union Congress of the Philippines party-list in October filed its own version of the bill, which is intended to criminalize all forms of contractualization.

TUCP slams Capas mayor Catacutan for rejecting OFW quarantine in Cayetano s caldero stadium
A workers group on Saturday criticized Capas, Tarlac Mayor Reynaldo Catacutan for opposing the quarantine of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) repatriated from the novel coronavirus or the 2019 nCoV stricken city of Wuhan in Hubei, China at the Athlete s Village of New Clark City. Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP) spokesperson Alan Tanjusay said they were disappointed with the mayor s seemingly unpatriotic attitude for getting in the way and obstructing a national health emergency concern for Filipino workers.
