UP workers oppose new job order, calls on UP admin to act

Approximately 500 non-contractual workers in the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman campus are at risk of being transferred to private agencies first thing next year.

Joint Circular No. 1, which covers all government agencies including state universities, allows the contract renewal of existing Job Order (JO) and Contract of Service (COS) workers only until December 31, 2018.
