Workers call for immediate end to contractualization on Bonifacio Day

Thousands of militant laborers commemorate Andres Bonifacio’s 153rd birth anniversary with a rally to demand from the Rodrigo Duterte government the immediate end to contractualization.

The workers reminded Duterte of his campaign promise to end the practice.

Five months into the Duterte presidency, contractual workers have yet to be regularized through executive action.

They also condemned the burial of the late dictator at the Libingan ng mga Bayani who they said, unlike Bonifacio, was not a real hero.
