Department of Labor and Employment Secretary Patricia Santo Tomas announced the deployment of the country’s first batch of overseas Filipino workers in Iraq last September 15.


Beginning one week ago, DOLE began approving the deployment of workers for a one-year contract. 120 workers were deployed after Sec. Santo Tomas was assured of their safety and the validity of their contracts. 45 more workers whose contracts were approved are set to follow.
