PAL employees’ return lauded

The Philippine Airlines reinstated 2,600 union members following a 2011 labor dispute, according to the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines.

The Philippine Airlines Employees Association protested the dismissal of 2,604 workers as a result of PAL management’s move to outsource some of operations to third-party service providers.

TUCP president Democrito Mendoza said PAL will sign a final agreement with PALEA on Friday at the Terminal 2 office.

“I offer our salute to union brothers and sisters in the PALEA,” he said.

“I also commend the tack of progressive openness and principled leadership chosen by the Philippine Airlines management led by its President and Chief Operating Officer Mr. Ramon Ang in pursuing the highest humane solution to the dispute.”

The airline employees went on strike in April 2011 and camped on the road near the PAL terminal. Negotiation started on December 2012 after a new management took over.
