Labor calls on gov’t: Stop mass layoffs, ensure job security

The government should put a stop to mass layoffs after some companies have allegedly taken advantage of the coronavirus pandemic to terminate regular workers, a labor group said Monday. The Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino (BMP) has proposed to the government to implement instead stringent measures to ensure employers would not undermine the workers’ job security during the pandemic.
