DOLE QUEZON CAPACITATES WORKERS ASSOCIATIONS ON FINANCIAL LITERACY AND ENDO


DOLE assisted associations were lectured on financial literacy by IMG Truly Rich Training Center on 27 May 2019 during the WODP training held at Ouans the Farm Resort in Lucena City.

ENDO and labor only contracting are social menace that threatens the very core of every Filipino workers existence. For DOLE Quezon, winning the battle over illegal forms of contractualization is not limited to the workers in the formal sector alone but also to the workers in the so-called informal economy.

On May 27-28, 2019 twelve (12) rural workers association with thirty (30) participants under the umbrella of the Federation of DOLE Assisted Associations in Quezon, Inc. (FDAQ) participated in the workers organizational development training of the Department of Labor and Employment which was funded under the WODP grant. The training focused on discussion and workshops relative to Personal Financial Management in particular in the areas of financial planning, investment options and maximizing the benefits of the financing industry. It was facilitated by IMG International Marketing Group through its IMG Truly Rich Training Center located in Lucena City.

Highlighting the activity was a lecture on the different issues related to end of contract and labor-only contracting. The topic proved to be very interesting among the DOLE assisted rural workers association as shown by the numerous questions raised by the participants to the lecturer. It was clarified by QPO Provincial Head Edwin T. Hernandez that regularization of workers is not limited to the formal economy only but it also includes the workers employed by the rural workers associations in their respective livelihood undertakings. Hernandez challenged the participating associations to take a bold step towards compliance to labor standards and regularization of worker as major elements in upgrading the status of their economic activity.
