PH, US eye labor pact

FOLLOWING the visit of President Marcos Jr. to the United States, the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) is looking at signing a labor agreement with its their American counterpart.

“We welcome the opportunity of inking a formal labor cooperation agreement that will provide structure to the relations between the two agencies,” said Migrant Workers Undersecretary Patricia Yvonne Caunan.

“We are both focused on protecting employees’ rights and giving workers fair treatment,” she added.

She official said the planned labor pact is a result of the DMW’s meeting with the Los Angeles District Office of the US Department of Labor (DOL). During the meeting, US labor officials committed to support the Philippines, through its Migrant Workers Office (MWO) in LA, in addressing employment challenges of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) there.

“DMW and USDOL officials also agreed to undertake joint labor education programs for OFWs,” Caunan also said.

The DMW contingent met with US labor officials on November 17 in Los Angeles.
