WHEN: Today, March 5, 10:00 am

DETAILS: Women members of the Philippine Airlines Employees Association (PALEA) will hold a rally at the DOLE to assail the agency’s connivance in the suppression of women workers rights. The protesters will bring female paper dolls with the necks in a noose to highlight the plight of women workers under the present government.
Among the rallyists will be breadwinners, single mothers and widows who are all facing extreme difficulties as PALEA enters its sixth month of a lockout by the Lucio Tan-owned flag carrier. After the rally, several of the PALEA members will attend a hearing at the DOLE regarding their illegal suspension by Philippine Airlines for supporting the union picketline.
