    • Project

      Lakbayan/Kampo or March/Campaign to Stop Contractualisation of Workers is a response to the harassment being experienced by women workers of  a big private company called DBSN  Farms Agriventures, Inc. It brings the campaign from Albuera and Leyte to the capital Manila to put a stop to the abuse by the DBSN Management and for them to comply with labour standards and respect the rights of women workers. Through concerted efforts by Bantay Kita, Oriang Women’s Group, DBSN Workers’ Union – SUPER Federation, and partner civil organisations, this campaign is expanding the space for political participation of women workers as they dialogue with the responsible organisations.

      Apart from mobilisation efforts towards their Lakbayan Camp to Manila, the project conducts a series of sharing sessions with students and other support groups, holding press conferences and fora to amplify the experiences and calls for justice of these women. The project envisions the end of contractualisation, provision of regular and decent jobs to women workers, improved working and living conditions of these workers and their families, and reduced incidents of abuse and exploitation of vulnerable women and workers. This project is creating a platform where the affected workers themselves can voice out their demands and be heard, engaging other sectors to act thus effecting necessary changes.
