Eulogy for Senator Boy Herrera

November 4, 2015

He was a man who valued work and the workers. He was a champion of our nation’s laborers, one who cared for the rights and well-being of the millions of Filipinos who toil to keep the country running but who usually reap the least of its riches. As the general secretary and vice president of the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines he stayed with the millions of workforce, a leader that stood up for their causes, while fighting for their rights and welfare.
