MANILA — After two failed mediation, the TV5 Employees Union filed April 1 a notice to conduct strike vote with the National Conciliation and Mediation Board of the Department of Labor and Employment -National Capital Region.

In the afternoon, union members held a protest in front of the TV5 Media Center in Reliance, Mandaluyong. They also marched around the TV5 premises carrying torches as symbol of their unity.

Vladimir Martin told Bulatlat that during the March 29 mediation at the NCMB DOLE, the management has been insisting on moratorium for the first year of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). “They were not negotiating at all are instead dictating the terms of the CBA,” Martin said.

The CBA negotiations, which began in September last year, reached a deadlock as TV5 management insists on what the union described as “measly” wage increases, “divisive” two-tier wage scheme, “harsh penalties” in the Code of Conduct, among others. (https://www.bulatlat.com)
