PIA Press Release

Statement of Secretary Ignacio R. Bunye on Labor Day

Manila (2 May) -- Labor Day is a tribute to the sterling role of Filipino workers, here and abroad, for driving our economy forward. It is to their betterment that we owe the country a unified platform for national cohesion; an understanding for constructive engagement across all sectors.

Today, as we enter the homestretch of the campaign period, let us give labor the importance that it deserves by discussing issues close to every Filipino worker's heart: decent wage, job security, shelter, and a better quality of life. The record of this administration in creating jobs, promoting skills, training, and securing industrial peace speaks for itself.

The challenge is for every day to be a day of national pride and productivity for all workers, including our overseas Filipino workers. It is this noble challenge that inspires government to put together a package of new benefits and programs to meet our workers' needs.

Our President's Labor Day package exemplifies the fruits of tripartite consultation as applied to building a strong nation and a better future for us all. (OPS) [top]
