Global building unions’ federation BWI has announced the 28 April plans of its Philippines affiliates.
NUBCW will hold a discussion on worker safety amongst union members. This will be followed with a ceremonial candle-lighting activity to commemorate those who have suffered work incidents and deaths.
In the Philippines global construction union federation Building and Wood Worker’s International (BWI) affiliate NUBCW will hold a one-day forum for new members (construction workers) covering safety standards and OHS rights at work.
Another BWI affiliate BWFM will organise an action involving 300 construction worker members in the Thainlyin township (this is in Yangon, and much of the construction activity there is within a special economic zone) to demand meaningful OHS legal reforms.
