Live interview of ECOP Director-General Jose Roland A. Moya in Ruth Cabal’s “On the Record” at CNN Philippines.
“President Duterte was correct in vetoing the bill. Had it been signed into law, the SoT bill would have adversely affected investments, stunted employment opportunities, and endangered existing jobs. Our problem is not the lack of policies in protecting the rights of workers. What needs to be done is to strictly implement the laws on security of tenure and against the prohibited acts of labor-only contracting as provided in the Labor Code, as amended, and established jurisprudence. The practice of endo or 555 by some unscrupulous employers has already been corrected with the promulgation of DO 174 and EO 51.”
