Groups urge public to boycott Jollibee group amid endo issues
Public were told to boycott Jollibee Foods Corp. (JFC), one of the largest fast-food chain in Southeast Asia, for its continuous practice of endo or illegal labor-only contracting.
“Support the workers of JFC by temporarily boycotting all its subsidiaries,” Samahan ng Manggagawa sa JFC and Defend Philippines said in a statement.
“[This is a] a call for support to Filipinos here and abroad to temporarily not patronize all of the subsidiaries and affiliates of JFC in support of its workers call for regularization and to stop the series of mass lay-offs of contractual workers and agency contracts,” it added.
To recall, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) earlier issued an order for JFC to regularize its workers after topping the list of companies in the Philippines practicing illegal labor-only contracting.
And yet, the groups said the “JFC has done nothing”.
Aside from Jollibee, JFC owns Chowking, Greenwich, Mang Inasal, Red Ribbon, Burger King, among others.
