In the Philippines, the Rodrigo Duterte regime will stop at nothing in its efforts to use violence and intimidation to target working people. Things have only gotten worse for Filipino workers and union activists during the pandemic, as they fight against dangerous, unsafe conditions that put their lives in jeopardy on the job.
On Wednesday, CWA District 1 Deputy Organizing Director Tim Dubnau and District 1 Deputy Legislative & Political Director Becca Miller spoke on a livestream about how CWA is fighting to pass the Philippines Human Rights Act (PHRA) to protect working people in the Philippines who are suffering under the Duterte regime. CWA members have worked closely with workers in the Philippines to lift standards for call center workers and fight against corporate greed. Watch the livestream here.
