PAWIS – PILIPINO ASSOCIATION OF WORKERS AND IMMIGRANTS

The Pilipino Association of Workers and Immigrants (PAWIS) support the fight of

the NXP Workers. Their fight for livable wages and regular employment instead

of temporary contractual status is not separate from the fight for workers rights

anywhere in the world.

We are deeply alarmed with the union-busting drive being carried out by

one of the biggest electronics firms in the Philippines based in Cabuyao,

Laguna,when the company terminated 24 union leaders of NXP Semiconductors

Inc. Workers’ Union (NXPSCIWU-NAFLU-KMU).

We believe that the illegal dismissal was carried out in relation to ongoing

negotiations for a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the union and

management and the management’s refusal to implement a significant wage hike

and regularize contractual workers.

their union are valid and reasonable. They are merely upholding workers’ rights.

All of us need a wage increase that’s significant, not just morsels of alms. All

of us deserve employment that’s regular, not just contractual.

alarmed that the capitalists and the Aquino government want to suppress

workers’ union at NXP and bust it. The Philippine government has been

deploying thousands of police forces to suppress the NXP workers’ protests.

We demand that Department of Labor (DOLE) and the Philippines Economic

Zone Authority (PEZA) take actions to uphold the rights of the workers.

We support the NXP workers’ fight. We will spread the word about their plight

and struggle, our struggle, to everyone.

The demands made by the NXP workers and

PAWIS
