Labor Secretary Silvestre Belo III reported yesterday that the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will begin closing down those “endo” (End of Contract) firms just before he leaves for Oslo, Norway this coming Thursday.
In the opposite, the business group are whining repeating that they have not got any official and clear definition from the DOLE.
Sergio Ortiz-Luis Jr. who happens to be the director of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry asked the DOLE what is by all accounts the genuine meaning of endo, he said:
We have dependably said that endo is illicit and we bolster the legislature on that, however our inquiry is what is truly the meaning of endo? Many individuals in DOLE are stating diverse things. All in all, our issue in the business group is the thing that truly is endo?
Before that, Bello had given the huge organizations with 7,000 workers and that’s just the beginning, that they will scratch off their permit to work on the off chance that they neglect to agree to the controls.
To aggregate everything up, there are 5,150 enlisted temporary workers and subcontractors sending an aggregate number of 416, 000 workers.
It can be reviewed President Rodrigo Duterte cautioned those “endo” firms last June 8, 2016, to stop contractualization or else he will shut down the foundations.
