WHAT: Rally to accompany filing of motion for reconsideration on outsourcing case
WHEN: Today, April 2, 1:00 pm
WHERE: Court of Appeals, Ma.
Ermita, Orosa St. Manila
DETAILS: Two weeks ago PALEA received a Court of Appeals (CA) decision (by the Special 8th Division, dated March 13, 2013, CA G.R. SP No. 120977) affirming the decision of the Office of the President allowing the outsourcing plan at PAL.
Hundreds of PALEA members will have a support rally while its leaders and lawyers file a motion for reconsideration to the CA decision. Despite the adverse court ruling, PALEA remains in talks with PAL management for a negotiated settlement to the long-running dispute.
The rally tomorrow comes on the heels of PALEA’s “Kalbaryo ng Manggagawa” protest at the airport area and “Global Day of Action” by supporters in Melbourne, Toronto and Honolulu last March 27. The highlight of the Kalbaryo protest was the lighting of 18 torches to symbolize the 18 months of PALEA’s fight against outsourcing and contractualization.
