PAL asked to pay debts to gov’t and workers in picket today
WHAT: Protest by retrenched PAL workers
WHEN: Today, Oct. 4, 10:00 am
WHERE: CAAP office, near NAIA Terminal 2
President Rodrigo Duterte assailed Lucio Tan-owned PAL for failing to pay CAAP for its debts on the use of airport facilities. As a result PAL has offered to settle the issue by paying P4 billion. PALEA will call on President Duterte to ask Lucio Tan and PAL to likewise fulfill their obligation to some 600 retrenched PAL workers who have yet to be reinstated as regular workers according to the terms of a settlement agreement forged in 2013 to resolve the outsourcing dispute. President Duterte is aware of this as it was brought to his attention in a dialogue with labor groups at Malacanang last February 27.
