Media Advisory: Sen. Risa to visit workers picketline vs 'Grinch' firm in Cavite

WHAT: Sen. Risa Hontiveros to hold solidarity visit to workers picketing Cavite firm

WHEN: Today, 10:00 am, Dec. 30, 2019

WHERE: Sejung Apparel Inc., First Cavite Industrial Estate, Dasmarinas, Cavite

Contact Person: Josephine Odchimar, union president, 09755769603

DETAILS: Sen. Risa has answered the appeal for solidarity for workers whose management has refused to pay the mandated 13th month benefit and also not released their latest salary too. Workers of Sejung have been on picket-protest since Dec. 12. The militant Partido Manggagawa has slammed the DOLE for inaction in enforcing labor standards.

Workers are calling on Sen. Risa to investigate the labor rights violations of locators in ecozones and make the incentives for investors conditional on respect for workers' rights. The CITIRA bill pending in Congress provides for the removal of incentives for foreign investments. ###
