Description: Air Transport Employees Local Lodge 1781, IAMAW, and the San Francisco Labor Council are co-sponsoring a forum with PALEA President Gerry Rivera.
PALEA represents 2,600 airline workers at Philippine Airlines (PAL). That airline, after posting record sales of $75.2 million in 2011, unexpectedly decided to implement an illegal “fire and rehire” outsourcing scheme.
All 2,600 workers were abruptly terminated and immediately offered their same jobs at significantly lower wages and benefits. This is not only contemptible and outrageous, it is also in complete violation of the existing collective-bargaining agreement which PAL essentially just tore up.
Please join us at this important labor event.
