'Endo' protest on Nat'l Heroes' Day

Members of the United Workers Alliance hit with hammers an effigy of President Duterte during a protest in Mendiola on National Heroes' Day, Monday, as they call for an end to contractualization and alleged attacks against labor unions. Last July, the president vetoed the security of tenure bill saying “Our goal, however, has always been to target the abuse, while leaving businesses free to engage in those practices beneficial to both management and the workforce.”
