02-07-2012 PALEA Statement on Impeachment PDF Print E-mail

Press Statement
February 7, 2012
Gerry Rivera
PALEA President

Ang Tipo ng Manggagawang Chief Justice ay Pro-Labor

We join the call for people to become active stakeholders not just passive spectators in the ongoing impeachment trial. In particular we appeal to our fellow workers to raise their voices and vote with their feet as to what standards should a Chief Justice be held to.

We deserve a Chief Justice of a higher moral and professional caliber. Not a Chief Justice who can be bought by the second-richest Filipino. Not a Supreme Court that will recall a ruling in favor of the 1,800 flight attendants who were illegally dismissed due to a mere letter from Philippine Airlines lawyer Estelito Mendoza.

PALEA on Impeachment
Press Statement
February 2, 2012

Workers demand reforms beyond Gloria and Corona

In the face of the ongoing impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona, workers demand “Reforms beyond Gloria and Corona.” Workers want not just the prosecution of Gloria Arroyo and her minions but the cleansing of all corrupt officials in the bureaucracy and further the institution of radical changes in the political and economic system.

Without such thoroughgoing reforms then the purging of Gloria’s followers would just pave the way for the embedding of PNoy’s own cronies in government. As it stands now, the so-called campaign for good governance by PNoy looks no more than a factional fight among the elite. This is because there is no difference between the regimes of Arroyo and Aquino with regards to labor policy, neoliberal economics and social programs.

Press Statement

PALEA Members Have Always Been the Soul of the Airline

Today is a black day for PAL and the Filipino Workers. PAL management has terminated the employment of 2,600 regular employees only to be “re-hired” as new and contractual workers in another service provider starting October 01, 2011.

These PAL employees are the unsung heroes of the flag carrier. For many generations, these PAL workers have toiled and sacrificed to serve the riding public. They are the people who assist you, the riding public, in checking in for a flight. They are the voices your hear when you call PAL.

Absent major policy reforms, there will be no social transformation

President Aquino’s communication advisers said the President’s second State of the Nation Address (SONA) will focus more on ‘social transformation’. What would that mean in real sense, however, largely depend on how Filipinos would view their lives today and in the immediate future. And for the masang Pinoy who have been used to hearing nice words from their leaders, this new buzzword assumes no meaning at all unless accompanied by major policy reforms.

For unemployed workers, their ‘transformation’ would mean having stable and good paying jobs. For contractual workers, that would mean regular and secured jobs. For the homeless, that would mean decent homes for the family. For the poor, sick, and old, that would mean universal healthcare and pension systems. For the youth, that would mean free education and brighter future. For migrant workers, that would mean a secured environment back home. For women, that would mean more freedom and equal opportunity.

Press Statement

Hiling ng mga manggagawa kay PNoy sa SONA:
Bagong landas ng social reform di lang tuwid na daan ng good governance

In his SONA, President Benigno Aquino will likely highlight his administration’s accomplishments in stamping corruption. But workers believe that poverty will not be solved by good governance alone. Poverty can only be eradicated by reforms in the economic and social arena that attacks the iniquitous distribution of wealth in the country.

After one year of PNoy, there is no new program to generate jobs, no new mechanism to increase workers wages and no change in the no-union policy in the ecozones. PNoy has given the go signal for contractualization at Philippine Airlines. He has praised Hanjin’s investments but has been silent on the deaths and injuries of workers at the shipyard-cum-graveyard. PNoy has continued with sacrificing labor rights at the ecozones to attract foreign capital.

07-18-2011 Statement on the Supreme Court ruling on Hacienda Luisita PDF Print E-mail

Press Statement
July 18, 2011

Expropriation is the ultimate solution to Hacienda Luisita dispute
Partido ng Manggagawa on the Supreme Court ruling on Hacienda Luisita

In the Philippines where big landlords sway both economic and political powers in all levels of society, the idea of putting an end to the age-old old agrarian dispute at Hacienda Luisita through a referendum is neither just nor democratic.

It is a farce. It is a ploy. It is a travesty of justice.

First, the referendum on stocks distribution option (SDO) expressed in the recent Supreme Court decision bolsters rather than weakens the Cojuangcos’ perpetual control of their sprawling 6,435-hectare estate.
