On Duterte’s Issuance of EO vs “endo”

 











We welcome the President's issuance of the executive order prohibiting illegal contracting and sub-contracting. 
 
The EO, whatever it is in there, is a guide for everyone on where the Executive’s stand on the issue of “endo” although it did not depart from the existing policy on contracting. But it should be noted that the President reiterated his call to end “endo” and illegal contractualization.
 
Having said that, the Senate will push through with enacting a law that will end labor abuses and promote workers' right to security of tenure.  
 
Let me emphasize that addressing the abuses and ensuring compliance by businesses with labor standards and occupational safety and health (OSH) standards through clear and fair legislation is not anti-business.
