Mass meeting and jam session tonight at picketline of biggest strike yet
Workers of strikebound Philip Morris Fortune Tobacco Corp. are having a mass meeting and jam session 6:00 pm tonight at the picketline in Parang, Marikina.
The strike started Friday night last week. The week-long strike has cost the company more than a billion in lost production.
Workers unrest is rising with a series of labor strikes in recent months and the strike at the leading cigarette firm is the biggest to date.
Workers have set up picketlines in its Marikina and Vigan factories. The union has slammed management for attempting to bring in scabs to operate the factory.
