Although the signing of the executive order (EO) by President Rodrigo Duterte against contractualization was postponed last March, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) said the signing may possibly happen on April 16.
However, according to the labor department, they have no idea which version President Duterte will sign.
If ever the EO against contractualization will be signed, this will serve as a gift of the government to workers on May 1, Labor Day.
According to Labor Undersecretary Dominador Say, there will be lesser protests on labor day once the EO is signed.
The Associated Labor Unions-Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (ALU-TUCP) hopes that their version will be the EO the president will sign.
“Kung ang pipirmahan sa April 16 na meeting na iyan ay hindi excutive order na ginawa ng labor groups, ay mas malawak at mas malaki ang protesta sa Labor Day sa May 1,” said ALU-TUCP spokesperson Alan Tanjusay.
