“‘Yung forked na tongue sinisimbolo ‘yung mga broken promises, especially ngayon dahil Labor Day. As throngs of people move forward towards the Peace Arch, flags bearing the names of unions and labor groups wave up high, and songs of solidarity and impassioned chants blare from the speakers, a huge effigy is pulled forward — it bears the features of a devil; fangs, horns, and forked tongue and all, and a striking resemblance to President Duterte.Under existing labor laws, many unjust practices by employers also slip by.And so, the protesters continue, hoping their calls against unjust practices will be answered, their voices heard.of the Manggagawa sa Komunikasyon ng Pilipinas (MKP), a group that has been fighting to end labor-only contracting of PLDT employees.Two days before Labor Day, the group held a press conference announcing their success — upon investigation of PLDT’s employment practices, DOLE had ordered the regularization of nearly 8,000 contractual workers and rejected PLDT’s Motion for Reconsideration.Gawa [ito] ng hindi na daw namin kaya [magtrabaho ng maayos] kasi may-edad na po kami, papalitan daw kami ng mga batang empleyado.” Another issue particular to women’s groups is the gender pay gap.Malou Bustamante of Women Wise points out the disparity between the pay received by male and female workers based on the amount of work hours they put in, which, according to them, often go beyond the eight-hour work day as prescribed by the Labor Code.

According to Labor law expert Ed Chico, the EO does not address the problem of ‘endo,’ or the practice of terminating employees on their fifth month to avoid regularization and giving the benefits accorded to regular workers.
‘Yung malaking pangako niya noong eleksyon ‘yung pagtatapos ng contractualization,” says Renan Ortiz, one of the artists responsible for the effigy, and member of Tambisan sa Sining, the cultural wing of Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU), one of the many groups present at the rally.
During his presidential campaign, President Duterte promised to end ‘endo,’ or ‘end of contract’ within a week of his term.
He says that the proposed jeepney modernization is not just a labor issue for the drivers, who risk being displaced under the program, but one that will affect all workers.
“‘Yung mga workers na hindi stable ang jobs, hindi stable ang income, problema ang pamasahe.
“Pero ang lahat ng mga batas na ‘yan na nagpoprotekta at nagbibigay ng benepisyo sa mga manggagawang Pilipino ay binura lahat ng kontraktwalisasyon.” These sentiments are echoed by other groups present as well.
