The wait for regularization
Terminated PLDT and its affiliate companies' workers picket the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) main office in Manila on Wednesday.
They called on DOLE to implement its ruling on regularization after workers were terminated despite its order to regularize 7,000 people outsourced by the company.
Last month, PLDT said "certain aspects" of DOLE's order to regularize 7,000 workers "were inconsistent with applicable law, jurisprudence and the documentary and testimonial evidence presented to the DOLE Secretary." It appealed the DOLE's order to regularize workers.
