The decision of the National Labor Relations Commission is a vindication of the workers’ right to strike and an initial step at undermining the talent system being implemented by RMN management.
“Ninety-nine percent of the guidelines during strikes expressly provide what the workers are prohibited to do. There is no corresponding magnitude of responsibility that refers to how the management should behave when a strike is declared.”
“We will not make compromises on the matter of our job security and our right to unionize. We will not allow RMN to accomplish its ultimate objective of busting our union and depriving us of our rights arising from being unionized.”
Workers accuse state security forces as behind the blatant surveillance on their activities. They said these coincided with their struggle to assert their right to renegotiate for a new CBA with the RMN management.
