The Philipines Department of Labor and Employment (Dole) on Facebook

Dole taps Facebook to raise support for domestic workers

Friday, November 11, 2011

THE Department of Labor and Employment (Dole) has turned to the largest social networking site Facebook to raise public awareness and support for the ratification of the International Labor Organization (ILo) Convention 189 and the Kasambahay bill passage.

Dole’s Labor and Communications Office has opened a site called I Support Kasambahay on Facebook to provide online ‘netizens’ a venue to find out what ILO Convention 189 and the Kasambahay bill are all about and to express their views and comments on these two landmark documents.

House Bill 553 or the proposed Magna Carta for Household Helpers sets standards for the employment of domestic workers following the ILO adoption of Convention 189 for the protection of household helpers.

“The I Support Kasambahay Facebook page aims to publicize the events and activities of the Dole under its Action Plan for the ratification of ILO Convention 189. It also seeks to raise the level of knowledge of the general public on the salient features of the convention and the benefits that will accrue to the country once it is ratified,” a Dole advisory explained.
