• ILO supports DOLE


    The International Labor Organization (ILO) expressed its support to the Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) emergency employment programs for the survivors of Typhoon Yolanda in eastern Visayas by providing technical expertise and financial assistance.

    Emergency employment programs, according to the ILO’s statement, offer workers whose livelihoods have been affected by the typhoon a minimum of 15 days work that inclues the minimum wage, correct personal protective equipment, three months Philhealth and social security coverage and one year of accident insurance.

    The work will begin with cleaning and basic repairs of schools and clinics, unclogging the canals and clearing and sorting of debris to support construction and recycling. BERNICE CAMILLE V. BAUZON
