Reinstate 2600 Hoya Workers, Stop Union Busting!

This petition is awaiting approval by the Avaaz Community
Reinstate 2600 Hoya Workers, Stop Union Busting!


Why this is important

Despite being constitutionally-guaranteed, workers are deprived of their right to organize in the Philippines. After successfully registering their union at the Department of Labor and Employment, 2600 workers lost their jobs due to the company's illegal closure without prior notice and proper legal proceedings. More than 2400 workers were deceived into signing their quitclaims and waivers, making them believe that the papers were the company's notice of closure. Practically held hostage, workers were forced to sign the documents as their last salary was included in the separation paycheck, and armed company guards surrounded them during the whole procedure. It is vital to create a huge movement that will call for justice for all 2600 workers who wished nothing but a decent living, that will subsequently give way to a better productivity in the workplace. Let us help all workers who suffer from capitalists' endless suppression! Stop trade union busting!
