Malacanang said that an Executive Order (EO) on contractualization of workers is not forthcoming, leaving the issue at the hands of Congress upon the recommendation of the Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE), according to presidential spokesman Harry Roque.

"Yung mga for example, 'yung mga nasa hotel and restaurant industry, mag-iidentify sila ng mga jobs na pwedeng contractual and kung ano 'yung mga jobs na hindi pwedeng contractual", ALU-TUCP spokesperson Alan Tanjusay said.
