Philippines: Masked men alleged to be Pepmaco guards attack protesting workers while asleep

A report alleged Pepmaco workers were attacked while resting outside company premises. It further alleged that the causes of the workers' protests were the company’s contractualization, mass termination, union busting, low-wages, 12-hour work days, and unsafe working conditions (that even lead to pregnant workers to suffer miscarriages).

Business and Human Rights Resource Centre invited Pepmaco to respond to the allegations. The report and Pepmaco's response is linked below.
