PALEA Undas protest today

WHAT: PALEA holds Undas protest to highlight outsourcing as death of job security

WHEN:  Today, October 31, 10:00 am and 6:00 pm

WHERE: PALEA protest camp

DETAILS:  PALEA will hold two protest actions this morning and afternoon with an Undas theme of “death of job security” at Philippine Airlines (PAL). Scores of PALEA members will parade a makeshift coffin marked “Demise of regular jobs” and a dozen mock tombstones with crosses bearing slogans such as “contractualization,” “outsourcing,” “corporate greed,” “arrest warrants,” and “PNoy’s anti-labor policy.”

PALEA has been holding daily marches around the airport area since a member, Romeo Sayas, was arrested October 16 on account of a criminal case filed by PAL management against 39 union members who defended the protest camp when it attacked by hired goons last October 29, 2011. The Undas protest today is an escalation of the daily PALEA protests.
