Statement of Senator Joel Villanueva on the passage of the End Endo bill on 3rd and final reading

We longed for this day to come, especially our workers who have suffered because of the evils of endo, a practice which corrupts the dignity of labor.

We want to give all workers peace of mind when it comes to their employment status, that no worker can be dismissed without just or authorized cause, and due process. We listened to the concerns of various stakeholders, and took these into account in putting together this bill. We believe this measure protects the interests of all parties concerned.

We are grateful for the support we received from our colleagues who helped us pass this measure.

The next phase of our struggle to end endo is in the bicam. We are determined to pursue this, especially that this measure has been certified urgent by the Executive.
