MANILA - Members of the Kilusang Mayo Uno protested in front of the Department of Labor and Employment office here on Friday and burned copies of new guidelines on contractualization.

The government is hoping the DOLE order will end the practice of "endo" wherein employment contracts are deliberately terminated before the sixth month to avoid paying benefits that are due to regular workers.

President Rodrigo Duterte will hold a dialogue with labor groups on May 1, the labor department said.--report by Zen Hernandez, ABS-CBN News
