Statement of Senate President Franklin M. Drilon on the passing of former Senator Ernesto "Boy" Herrera

I join the whole nation in mourning the passing of a friend and an esteemed colleague, former Senator Ernesto "Boy" Herrera.

As a union leader and as Senator, Boy Herrera was a tireless crusader for the welfare of the Filipino worker.

I have known Boy for decades and I witnessed how committed he was in fighting for the cause, rights and welfare of millions of our workers. He was a giant of Philippine labor. Our country's workers have lost a champion.

I am proud to have worked and shared the Senate floor with such a principled and distinguished public servant. He will remain an inspiration to all of us.
