Duterte urged to help PLDT contractual workers


Will President Duterte hear the clamor of contractual workers of PLDT for job security?

Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson is hopeful that the President would take action to uphold the welfare of the workers of the telecommunications giant.

“Tatay I hope u could help our kababayan,” Uson wrote on Facebook, sharing photos of the PLDT workers holding a street demonstration in Mendiola, Manila.

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) earlier ordered the Manny Pangilinan-led PLDT to regularize more than 7,000 employees without any condition.

PLDT reportedly plans to contest the DOLE order.
