For the past ten years, the Bureau of Workers with Special Concerns (BWSC) has championed for policies, programs and projects that cater to the workers in the informal economy.
And to showcase its accomplishments, the BWSC will be celebrating its 10th year anniversary on January 16, 2020 at the Swiss Belhotel Blulane in Manila.
The Bureau’s significant contribution for the attainment of the Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) accomplishments through its policies and programs by providing quality service to the vulnerable and marginalized sectors cannot be undermined.
BWSC Director, Atty. Ma. Karina Perida-Trayvilla once remarked, “The Bureau has been given a stronger mandate as it continues to fulfill its crucial role in championing the rights of workers to decent work and productive employment, promoting gender equality and economic empowerment, and pushing for the rights of children against abuse and exploitation.”
The celebration will start with a press conference to be attended by the DOLE’s top officials focusing on Executive Order Nos. 92 and 70, which are the creation of National Council Against Child Labor (NCACL) and the institutionalization of the Whole of Nation Approach on National Task Force to End the Local Communist Armed Conflict, respectively.
Parallel activities will also commence on the same day like the organizational meeting of NCACL and a seminar on savings, spending and wise investments for the BWSC staff.
