MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. urged the Senate to adopt an International Labor Organization (ILO) Convention 190 addressing harassment in the workplace, said the Palace on Wednesday.

The ILO Convention No. 190 is the Convention Concerning the Elimination of Violence and Harassment in the World of Work. It would create a framework to address harassment and violence of all forms, including gender-based harassment.


“The ratification of the ILO C190 will fortify the Philippine government’s mandate and policy in promoting and protecting the rights of Filipino workers, locally and overseas, by pushing for a work environment with zero tolerance for violence and harassment,” Marcos said in a letter to Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri and other senators.

Marcos had written the letter on October 13, but it was only released to the media on Wednesday.
