(PLF) Solidity Support PALEA Philippine
On behalf of the Executive Board of Pakistan Labour Federation (PLF) we are writing to express our deep concern with the plight of the approximately 2,600 locked-out and terminated ground crew of Philippine Airlines in the airport services, in-flight catering and call center reservations departments who are represented by the union Philippine Airlines Employees’ Association (PALEA). After the protest by PALEA on September 27 at the Manila International Airport and other offices, they were abruptly locked out and then terminated. We fully support the demand of PALEA that the workers should be allowed to immediately return to work as regular employees, and to save a company that turned net profits of US$72.5 million last fiscal year.
We therefore requested the Government to respect the employees basic Rights
And provide the Employees for free and fair collective bargaining and would not .
transformed full time workers into temporary, contractual workers because it is the violations of ILO Conventions
we reiterate our solidarity with PALEA, and urge you to take action to ensure that the locked-out and terminated workers are immediately reinstated to their regular jobs, .
