Contact Alnem Pretencio (PALEA VP) @ 09209543634

        Post-Women’s Day Action
Women workers lead caravan to Cavite
vs. high prices, endo jobs

WHAT: Women members of PALEA, Partido ng Manggagawa, Rosario Workers Association and United Cavite Workers Association join in caravan vs. high prices and contractual (end of contract) jobs

WHEN:  Today, March 10, start at 12:00 noon, program at 2:00 pm

WHERE: Start at PALEA protest camp and end with program at main gate of Cavite Ecozone (Rosario, Cavite)

DETAILS: The caravan vs. high prices and endo jobs is an extension of the observance of International Women’s Day and an anticipation of the Labor Day commemoration. The high cost of living and the proliferation of contractual work is a double whammy on workers in general and women in particular.

The caravan will pass through the densely populated areas of Paranaque, Las Pinas, Bacoor and Noveleta, before finishing at the industrial town of Rosario. A highlight of the caravan will be the salubungan at the main gate of the Cavite Ecozone where organized Cavite workers will meet the contingent from Metro Manila.
