Philippines garment sector to adopt ILO akin policies
Mar '11
Talks are on between the concerned agencies for formulation and adoption of a labour compliance program for the domestic garment industries which could better match with the International Labour Organization (ILO)'s 'Better Work Program'.

Cristino L. Panlilio, Trade and Industry Undersecretary in a memorandum, revealed this information to all the concerned agencies to have the 'Save Our Industries' bill passed in the U.S. Congress.

Further, in the memo the official stated that, the Garments and Textile Industry Development Office, Department of Labour and Employment and workers leaders, are convening meetings with the support of the Clothing and Textile Industry Tripartite Council, for formulation and adoption of a labour compliance programme similar to that of ILO's Better Work Program, for the domestic garment units.

The Filipino garment industry leaders and the labour unions are all very much keen to collaborate and give their best to push the passage of the 'Save Act', which is aimed at revival of the garment and textile industries of both the countries - the Philippines and the US, Panlilio said.

Previously, Thelma Dumpit-Murillo, Director of the Garments and Textile Industry Development Office (GTIDO) had stated that, the US authorities have stated the Philippines' labour and intellectual property rights issues to be impeding the early passage of the proposed 'Save Act' bill.
