PAL respects government order but prepared for strike action

5-Apr-2011 8:55 AM

Philippine Airlines Employees' Association (PALEA) members rallied outside the Department of Labour and Employment's (DOLE) main office in Intramuros, Manila, on 04-Apr-2011 to protest its order banning the union from striking. PALEA president Gerry Rivera said the rally was the first in a series planned until Labour Day on 01-May-2011. Philippine Airlines announced (02-Apr-2011) it will abide by the DOLE order even as it stressed its readiness to deal with repeated threats of work stoppages by its ground workers. [more - PAL]
