The National Union of Building and Construction Workers (NUBCW) commemorated the International Workers Memorial Day 2022 last 24 April 2022 in Quezon City, Philippines. In attendance are NUBCW local members from Evergreen Mfg Corp. Regular project-based Employees Union (EMCRPEU), Women Welders Guild (WWG), and Association of Women Workers in the Construction Industry (AWWCI). NUBCW Secretary General, Santiago Nolla, lead the discussion on the current status of Filipino workers, and the Occupational Health and Safety laws in the Philippines. The members also echoed their concerns that most workers in the Philippines are underpaid yet the work is hard and dangerous. Women workers see that discrimination and harassment are still rampant, especially in the construction industry, that is why mainstreaming women in the construction industry plays an important role in eradicating this problem. #iwmd22
