Personnel of the National Conciliation and Mediation Board-CAR paved their way to Baguio City’s business district to monitor rallies from various labor groups. Despite their presence, the City remained calmed and peaceful in its celebration of Labor Day.
An assembly of approximately 70 people representing sectors from education, transport, health, women and Business Processing Outsource (BPO) took turns in airing their grievances.
Among others, they have voiced are the inclusion of provision on higher salaries and wages, end of contractualization, security of tenure, unionism, TRAIN Law and the lowering of working hours for the BPO industries.
The protest rally immediately dispersed after the program and no untoward incidents were reported.
