PALEA to Tourism Congress: Ask PAL to open talks

The Philippine Airlines Employees’ Association (PALEA) called on the Tourism Congress to exert moral suasion on Philippine Airlines (PAL) to open talks to resolve the ongoing labor dispute in the face of the company’s refusal to negotiate with the union. The Tourism Congress had expressed concern that the labor row is negatively affecting the influx of tourists.

Meanwhile two PALEA officers today appeared at the Southern Police District (SPD) Headquarters in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City as part of the investigation of an incident involving the entry of four policemen to the PAL In-Flight Center at MIA Road last Wednesday. Jake Garcia and George Dela Rosa, PALEA board members, filed their affidavits this morning in the complaint against the policemen headed by a certain PInsp. Neil Deveraturda.

ImageThe Philippine Airlines Employees Association (PALEA) asserted that the safety of airline passengers maybe compromised with overworked management staffs and contractual trainees handling the flights of Philippine Airlines (PAL).

PAL was forced to deploy management staffs to handle few flights after it terminated some 2,600 ground crew on September 27 and October 1. However, because PALEA rejected the outsourcing and contractualization of their members to the assigned service providers, PAL is left with no skilled manpower to handle its flights.

Union busting is the real aim of outsourcing

Don't fly with P-Noy's contractualization policy!The Philippine Airlines Employees’ Association (PALEA) today asserted that Philippine Airlines (PAL) President Jaime Bautista’s announcement that they no longer acknowledge Gerry Rivera and Bong Palad as union officers exposes union busting as the real aim of outsourcing. “Truly a fish is caught by its mouth. Actually PAL is not just recognizing me and Palad as union officers but 62% of PALEA’s leadership and 70% of its membership who have been illegally lockout and terminated. Outsourcing thus is tantamount to union busting,” stated Gerry Rivera, PALEA president and vice chair of Partido ng Manggagawa (PM).

Meanwhile Renato Magtubo, PM chair and co-chair of the Church-Labor Conference, an alliance of labor and church groups supporting PALEA, condemned threats from the Philippine National Police to disperse the campout at the PAL Inflight Center where thousands of employees continue their protest. “We warn government against using force to break the protest camp of PALEA. Labor and church groups will be one in strongly denouncing such a move,” he said.

PALEA: PAL’s alleged losses and ruin is a fairy tale

The Philippine Airlines Employees’ Association (PALEA) called the alleged financial ruin of Philippine Airlines (PAL) as “a modern-day fairy tale.” “PAL does not have to choose between saving the jobs of 2,600 PALEA members and the remaining 5,000 employees since it is not in danger of bankruptcy. PAL has not been able to start the outsourcing plan for the past two years because of PALEA’s defiance and yet it earned a net income of $72.5 million or more than P3 billion in its last fiscal year and is already projecting a modest profit for the present year,” asserted Gerry Rivera, PALEA president and vice chair of Partido ng Manggagawa.

He added that “The threat of ruin if outsourcing is not implemented is plain and simple black propaganda and blackmail by PAL. The reason the dispute has dragged on for the last two years and the present standoff exists is because of PAL’s intransigence.”
