Labor groups renew call for anti-endo bill after Duterte's veto

Members of various labor groups stage a protest at the Boy Scout Circle in Quezon City on Monday to denounce the new government policy direction on endo and President Rodrigo Duterte's veto of the Security of Tenure bill which he himself had certified as urgent. 

Labor Secretary Silvestre Belo III said that the president was surprised by the public outcry over his veto as he only seeks to maintain the balance of interests of the workers and employees.
