Workers dare Duterte to fulfill campaign promises during Bonifacio Day rally

Dec. 01, 2016

DAVAO CITY, Philippines – On Bonifacio Day, thousands of workers in Davao region occupied the Freedom park here challenging President Rodrigo Duterte to fulfill his campaign promises.

The issue on contractualization of workers, which Duterte promised to put a stop to, was raised during the commemoration.

“The campaign promise of President Rodrigo Duterte to end the exploitative contractualization scheme remains uncertain,” said Carlo Olalo, spokesperson of Kilusang Mayo Uno in Southern Mindanao region.

“What is more alarming is that some government officials such as those in the Department of Labor and Employment and Department of Trade and Industry are singing the same tune now with the capitalists in preserving the status quo,” he said.
