PALEA slams arrest warrants on 39 members

The Philippine Airlines Employees’ Association (PALEA) slammed a Pasay judge for an order to issue warrants of arrests against 39 of its members. The arrest warrants arose from a case of grave coercion filed by Philippine Airlines (PAL) management. “On October 29, 2011, hired goons attacked the PALEA protest camp and then PAL management tried to turn tables by filing trumped up charges against active union members. This harassment case is meant to pressure PALEA members to surrender our fight for regular jobs,” declared Gerry Rivera, PALEA president and vice chair of Partido ng Manggagawa.

Last August 15, Judge Bibiano Colasito of the Metropolitan Trial Court Branch 44 ordered that warrants of arrests be issued after a finding of probable cause. Rivera vowed that PALEA will not give up its fight and instead challenge the decision of the court. “This issue proceeds from the labor dispute between PAL and PALEA, and thus before any civil court intervenes it must first secure a clearance from the Department of Labor and Employment or the Department of Justice which did not happen in this case,” he clarified.

PALEA calls on PAL stockholders to reinstate regular workers

On the eve of its annual meeting, the Philippine Airlines Employees’ Association (PALEA) today called on the stockholders of Philippine Airlines (PAL) to reinstate the regular workers who were retrenched in the controversial outsourcing scheme. “There will be no industrial peace at PAL without justice for workers. PALEA is part of the solution to the problems of the flag carrier,” insisted Gerry Rivera, PALEA president and vice chair of Partido ng Manggagawa.

PALEA vowed to press on with its fight against outsourcing at PAL as it commemorated the other day the 11th month of its picketline with an assembly of several hundred workers at the protest camp outside the PAL In-Flight Center...

PALEA holds protest as 234 members threatened with arrest

Some 100 members of the Philippine Airlines Employee Association (PALEA) picketed the Pasay Hall of Justice this morning as union lawyers filed a petition for the Municipal Trial Court to review the finding of “probable cause” by a fiscal. In a resolution dated June 20, 2012, the city prosecutor recommended the filing of information against 234 respondents to the case.

“Ex-President Gloria Arroyo is freed on bail by a Pasay fiscal despite arguably strong evidence of electoral sabotage while a colleague threatens 234 workers with arrest for alleged ‘economic sabotage’ on dubious grounds. PALEA’s protest at the airport last September 27, 2011 was an exercise of the constitutionally guaranteed right of workers to concerted action and thus not illegal nor criminal,” asserted Gerry Rivera, PALEA president.

PNoy’ SONA: Long on duration, short on its claim

ImagePresident Benigno Aquino III’s SONA speech yesterday may have been the longest in history but it falls short on its claim of a historic change in our country. The changes instituted under his administration are merely superficial not thoroughgoing. PNoy asserts that good governance is leading to palpable improvements but only social justice will bring concrete change to ordinary people’ lives.

What is glaringly absent from the tons of numbers and data mentioned in PNoy’s SONA is statistics on poverty and hunger. It is no wonder since despite a decade of so-called GNP growth, the number of poor and hungry have remained intractable.

Workers picket CB in protest of $1B loan to IMF

Members of the Philippine Airlines Employees’ Association (PALEA) and the Partido ng Manggagawa (PM) picketed this morning the Central Bank headquarters and office of the Department of Finance at Roxas Boulevard in Manila in a protest against the controversial $1 billion loan to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). More than a hundred workers chanted “Help the needy not the greedy! Support Europeans thru solidarity not austerity!”

“How can Malacanang justify the loan as helping the Europeans when the supposed beneficiaries have rejected the IMF bailout and its conditionalities? By protests and through the polls, the workers and people of Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Italy and France have all rejected IMF austerity,” averred Gerry Rivera, PALEA president.
