NutriAsia told to regularize 80 workers
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) told NutriAsia Inc. — the company behind the famous brands such as Datu Puti, Silver Swan, Mang Tomas, UFC Banana Catsup — to regularize 80 of its employees.
Accused of unfair labor treatment, NutriAsia was also found guilty of practicing labor-only contracting arrangement with AsiaPro Multi-Purpose Cooperative (AMPC).
“The labor inspectors noted that AMPC did not solely exercise control and supervision on the performance of its workers under the job or work contracted out. Hence, DOLE ordered AMPC to cease and desist from further engaging in contracting activities,” DOLE said.
This developed as NutriAsia is yet to close the books on the violent workers protest that happened in its plant in Marilao, Bulacan last month.
In a June 20 statement, NutriAsia denied the claims against it.
