NXP Semiconductors, one of the world’s top electronics firm and a supplier of Samsung and Apple, is a violator of workers' rights.
 
Its plant in the Philippines illegally dismissed 24 union officials amidst negotiations for a Collective Bargaining Agreement in an effort to weaken workers’ fight for a significant wage hike and the regularization of contractuals.
