AMID President Duterte’s unfulfilled promise to end “endo,” Gabriela Women’s Party (GWP) will lead the filing of a House resolution on July 19 (Wednesday) seeking a congressional investigation of SM malls’ contractualization schemes and on the working conditions of the mall chain’s workers.

Other Makabayan bloc party-lists and a women workers’ organization will join Gabriela in the filing of the resolution that seeks to put the spotlight on Henry Sy’s “Endo Empire.”

Endo is refers to the practice of hiring contractual workers and firing them at the end of their contracts to prevent them from becoming regular employees.
