The Alliance of Progressive Labor (APL) and Koalisyon Kontra Kontraktwalisasyon (KONTRA) condemns the latest attempt of Philippine Airlines to break the protest camp of Philippine Airlines Employees Association (PALEA). PAL is desperate. They failed to get the nod of the court’s TRO so they resorted to violent attacks on the lives of their workers. Once again PAL has proven its wanton disregard for the workers’ rights!
We salute PALEA members for holding out and successfully fending off this treacherous attack. By brazenly attacking the picket line of PALEA, PAL is actually attacking KONRA. As such, we will continue to stand side by side with PALEA.
This was done at a time when the public is gearing to honor their dead. So treacherous!
