PM slams PAL’s “call for an alliance of the 1% vs. the 99%”

The Partido ng Manggagawa (PM) slammed the call of Philippine Airlines (PAL) for support from employers’ organizations as “an unholy alliance of the 1% vs. the 99%.” Meanwhile the Philippine Airlines Employees’ Association (PALEA) announced that it is readying its own charges against those responsible for the daybreak attack on its protest camp last Saturday which resulted in injuries to seven of its members and the death of a bystander.

“PAL’s Halloween appeal for help is a call for the forces of darkness to unite against the forces of good. In tagging PALEA’s protest camp as harassment, PAL wants to subvert labor rights in favor of property rights. Lucio Tan wants a return to the Marcos dictatorship when cronies ruled with impunity over the workers and the people. In contrast to PAL, PALEA is asking for support from workers and the people—the 99%—through a Lakbay-Hustisya,” asserted Renato Magtubo, chair of Partido ng Manggagawa (PM).

PALEA has already filed a criminal compliant against a certain Johnny dela Cruz, one the alleged hired goons who was apprehended during the attack. PALEA is now consulting with its lawyers on another case against the purported mastermind of the attack. Dela Cruz had signed a sworn statement to the police that he was paid together with others to disperse PALEA’s campout.

Around 500 PALEA and PM members proceeded this morning to the Pasay city jail where dela Cruz is detained and the offices of the Regional Trial Court as it begins the three-day Lakbay-Hustisya. The long march around Metro Manila aims to bring the advocacy against contractualization to the grassroots level. The “Lakbay-Hustisya” will pass by parishes and communities in Manila, Quezon City, Makati, Paranaque and Pasay as part of PALEA’s campaign to garner the support of ordinary Filipinos in the fight for regular jobs.

Gerry Rivera, PALEA president and PM vice chair added that “What is behind PAL’s insistence on its property rights over the In-Flight Center? Why does PAL want to operate the IFC when it has declared that the airport services, call center reservations and catering departments have been closed? If Sky Kitchen and Sky Logistics need the IFC then these are illegal labor-only contractors not independent service providers.”

Meanwhile PM challenged the government for “decisive action instead of comforting words” in the wake of its call for sobriety. “Workers are getting killed and hurt while PNoy turns a blind eye to the escalating violence foisted on PALEA. Contrast this administration’s inaction to the Australian government’s swift intervention in the Qantas lockout,” Magtubo insisted.

Today the Lakbay-Hustisya marchers will also go to PAL’s offices at the PNB Building in
Macapagal Ave.
, Malate Church, PAL ticketing office in Faura, the Court of Appeals, the Department of Labor and Employment and then Quiapo Church where they will spend the night.
