Tell Philippine Labor Secretary to protect Pa-aling fishermen

Help us reach 50,000 actions

Dear Labor Secretary,

Pa-aling fishermen are regularly exposed to life-threatening and exploitative labour conditions mirroring modern slavery. I welcome the Department of Labor and Employment’s plans to draft labor and occupational health and safety guidelines for the industry. We urge you to follow through on this promise so that no more pa-aling fishermen are trapped in slavery at sea.
