March from Makati Fire Station to PAL/Allied Bank along Ayala
WED, 26 APRIL 2017 4:00 PM
Members of various labor groups such as Philippine Airlines Employees Association (PALEA), Partido Manggagawa, Manggagawa ng Komunikasyon sa Pilipinas (MKP-PLDT union) are leading the rally to call for the reinstatement of some 600 outsourced PAL employees and the end to contractualization in companies.
This is in response to the statement of the DOLE last Wednesday that as per the initial findings of their inspection, PAL and PLDT contracual workers are suffering violations of labor and safety standards and are actually doing the job of regular workers.
In the inspections done on PAL and PAL Express, representatives of PALEA joined DOLE labor inspectors.
The rally is also a buildup to the big workers rally on May 1.
