WHAT: Labor Secretary asked to intervene as mediation scheduled between striking women workers and electronics firm Lakepower Converter Inc.
WHEN: January 17 (Wednesday), 9:00 am
WHERE: DOLE National office, Intramuros, Manila
Women workers of electronics firm Lakepower in Cavite ecozone have been on strike for more than a month now. They are calling on the office of the Labor Secretary to intervene to resolve the protracted dispute. The workers are calling for a stop to the termination and suspension of union officers and members. The protracted labor dispute is a litmus test of the right to unionize for workers in the export processing zones. ###
