Philippines: Unions announce new labour agreement with NXP & reinstatement of 12 members of union executive following global campaign

"Global campaign defeats union-busting attack at NXP", 29 Sep 2014

"Twelve dismissed members of the union’s executive will return to work, the other twelve will receive decent separation packages and become full time trade union activists, wage hikes of 12.25% over three years will be much higher than what the company previously said was possible, and a significant number of contractual workers will be regularized. But most important for the NXP workers, the company’s brutal attempt to bust the union was defeated...Dutch multinational NXP Semiconductors sacked all 24 elected union officials at its plant in a special economic zone in Cabuyao on 5 May for taking time off on national holidays. A number of security measures meant to intimidate workers were taken....An impressive local campaign by MWAP was supported internationally."
