CWS leaders

Construction Workers Solidarity (CWS) partylist recently filed their certificates of candidacy (COC) for the 2022 national elections. 

The partylist aspirants were headed by Tirso Edwin Gardiola and Engr. Earel Benedicto Gardiola, who both hail from Mataas na Kahoy, Batangas, along with Melanie Joy Momo-Guno of Tandag, Surigao Del Sur. Guno is the daughter of incumbent Congressman Romeo Momo, CWS partylist representative.

The CWS partylist was founded with the goal of assisting and protecting construction workers by ensuring that they are treated equitably and that their needs and construction-related concerns are addressed by their employers and the government.

In 2020, hundreds of laborers and construction workers were stuck at construction sites and barracks as a result of a national directive for a hard lockdown. During that period, they had to endure months without income and other means of livelihood. They also received limited assistance from the local government.

At the height of the lockdowns in the National Capital Region, CWS Partylist assisted workers in the areas of Tanza and Imus in Cavite, Ugong in Valenzuela City; Las Pinas City, Malate in Manila; Tabacalera, Pateros; Quirino Highway in Quezon City; Daan Tubo in UP Diliman Campus; Bangkal in Makati; Guerilla Street in Marikina City; Cagayan De Oro City; and those stranded at Grand Westside Hotel, Solaire, Grand Westside, among others. In addition, CWS Partylist gave other types of assistance to LGUs and the public nationwide.

With the national government’s Build, Build, Build program, CWS partylist will be more active in ensuring the welfare of construction workers in the country who remain an unprivileged sector at large.
