NXP Semiconductors response

NXP is a reputable company that respects the rights of its workers, strictly complies with the country's labor laws, and provides employees with above industry standard compensation and benefits...This issue of dismissal occurred in the middle of negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement when union leaders encouraged workers not to report for work on three occasions that were national holidays. In fact it is unfortunate that, even while negotiations were on-going, numerous illegal acts like vandalism, noise barrages resulting to destruction of company property, mass protests specially blocking our buses to force disembarkation of our passengers, pickets in and outside company premises and private areas were sanctioned by the union leadership. The spike in absences greatly impacted NXP's ability to serve its clients and was a clear violation of Philippine labor laws. Furthermore, contrary to what they are saying, the policy of reporting for work during holidays is compliant with Philippine labor laws. It is a standard industry practice by major manufacturers to require workers to report for work even for holidays in order to meet global production schedules...The above mentioned illegal actions by the union leaders left the company with no choice but to make the painful decision to dismiss them to ensure NXP's uninterrupted operations in the Philippines...
