Pasko sa picketline ng Lakepower women workers in Cavite
WHAT: Striking women workers in Cavite ecozone to spend Christmas eve at the picketlines as the dispute drags on
WHEN: December 24
WHERE: Picketline at Lakepower Converter Inc., Cavite Ecozone, Rosario, Cavite
Women workers of electronics firm Lakepower Converter Inc. are spending Christmas eve at the picketline as the labor dispute drags on. Tomorrow will be their 18th day on strike. A scheduled mediation last Friday (Dec. 22) did not push through as management did not attend. Another is set on December 28.
In the a mediation meeting last Dec. 19 conducted by the office of Labor Undersecretary Joel Maglungsod, management stood pat on its position of punishing all workers who joined the strike.
Today, workers from unions in Metro Manila visited the picketline and held a day of solidarity and camaraderie as a show of support for the women workers strike. The strike started on December 7 when management refused union demands for a stop to discriminatory firings and suspension of union officers and members.
