The WaY Assembly reviewed the accomplishments of the Women and Youth Committees and organizations of NTUC Phl affiliates in the 2018-2023 NTUC Phl Women and Youth Agenda, as well actions by federations and local unions on the 13-point Agenda.

New issues slated for multi-year work include advocacy for implementation of ILO C190; actions for an ILO instrument for Platform workers; progressive living wages rather than minimum wages; better social protection and more responsive health benefits; meaningful digital, artificial intelligence, just green, and formality transitions; and increased representation in LGUs (local government units).
