Philippines: Workers of Pacific Plaza Towers Condominium go on strike to seek security of tenure and benefits

"The Pacific Plaza condominium protesters who went on hunger strike," 10 December 2018
Former employees of the Pacific Plaza Towers — 34 of them — went on a hunger strike after 17 contracted workers were terminated without prior notice...The management of the condominium...says their contract with the agency...has ended; the workers believe they have a right to be absorbed as mainstays in the condominium workforce.
However, employment status is just one part of the problem. They also complain of security officers increasing surveillance on them, to the point of escorting them during service hours, and gaining duplicate keys to their lockers. Accusations of laziness are also hurled at them, though the workers say jobs within the scope of their designations have been outsourced.
