Militants urged Secretary Baldoz to step down

In a bid to support the beleaguered workers of PALEA, members of the Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino held a lighting rally in front of the PAL ticketing office located at Cubao Ali-Mall. The group launched their opening salvo calling the DoLE Secretary to immediately resign.

Armed with placards and an enlarged poster, the group paraded and shouted slogans expressing their grave concern on the decision attributed to the death of job security.

“If we were not mistaken, it was during the time of President Cory Aquino that DoLE Secretary Augusto “Bobbit” Sanchez made an honorable exit when he was faulted for a decision that was judged as anti-worker. This time around, Secretary Baldoz came up with a decision that is not only anti-worker but also unconstitutional. All the more that she need not think twice. She is not worthy of being the Secretary of a supposed to be pro-worker government institution and should vacate her post.” Leody De Guzman, BMP President in an interview.

The group vowed to step up their campaign to pressure Secretary Baldoz to resign and registered their all out support to the workers of Philippines Airlines.

“We will not only support the planned strike of PAL workers in the next few days but we will go all the way even to the legal arena of battle. We firmly believe that the decision will pave the way for more exploitation and hardships for the Filipino workers for such scenario would signal and trigger new trends in the labor sector. Similar situation arose in 1998 when a 10-year CBA moratorium was imposed to the PALEA workers that became a national nightmare”. De Guzman added.

The group will also participate in the planned motorcade tomorrow, November 12 to dramatize the filing of omnibus motion to question the legality of Secretary Baldoz decision at the court of appeals. (30)
