PAL UNION MEMBERS ACCEPT SEPARATION PAY DEAL

Philippine Airlines has announced that more than 500 union members have signified their intention to accept separation pay amounting to nearly P1 million for each. Following the deal, the airline is now free to spin-off three departments and lay off 2,600 workers as part of its restructuring program.

However, ground crew members’ union, the Philippine Airlines Employees’ Association (PALEA), disputed the number of workers who might accept the separation package. Although it agreed some members had accepted the offer, the number fell short of 500, said PALEA.

The union has already filed a notice to strike but the airline has warned against it as they will terminated the strikers as the labour dispute in still pending at the Office of the President.
