In support of DOLE’s campaign against illegal contractualization
Globe Telecom is currently in talks with its accredited third-party vendor partners on the regularization of all contractual employees in support of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE)’s campaign against all forms of illegal contractualization.
“As a sustainable organization, one of our purpose is to ensure that our people are treated right. Thus, we have requested all our accredited third-party vendor partners which are providing us with staff augmentation and managed services, to issue the regularization papers of their employees to ensure that everything is in accordance with labor laws,” said Atty. Froilan Castelo, Globe Legal Counsel.
Globe is working closely with DOLE to comply with its requirements involving its operations. The government agency has given the company until May 16, 2017 to address any manpower-related concerns.
DOLE is actively pursuing the regularization of workers in response to President Duterte’s campaign promise to end the practice of continuous job contractualization. On March 16, 2017, it issued Department Order No. 174 on contracting and sub-contracting.
