A LabourStart appeal by Eric Lee
A company in the Philippines has sacked all 24 officers of the trade union rather than bargain collectively.
NXP Semiconductors didn't like its employees joining a union, which is a rare thing in the country's free trade zones, and have determined to bust the union.
One of the ones they sacked is Reden Alcantra, the president of the national metalworkers union.
We are calling on NXP to reinstate the union officials, to resume negotiations, and to respect workers' rights.
