Electronics multinational NXP will reportedly supply the microchip technology in the new iPhone 6. IndustriALL Global Union has called on Apple to intervene and ensure a fair settlement in NXP’s Philippine operations, including a return to work for 24 sacked trade unionists.

Trade unions in a number of countries marked an international day of action on 2 July calling for reinstatement of the NXP 24. First Union in New Zealand kicked off the day and was followed by actions particularly in the Asia-Pacific region. The NXP workers being vindictively attacked by their local management are members of the Philippine metalworkers union, affiliated to IndustriALL, MWAP.

Caltex Workers Win Hard Fought Wage Increase

Caltex

Union Statement

The strike was mostly a snap decision. The union had complied with most of the legal procedures but had not taken the case to Arbitration - a requirement for a legal strike in Cambodia. So we were expecting an injunction from the court at any time - but this didn't happen (possibly because of the week-long national holiday).  

More than 300 workers in Phnom Penh joined the strike and they were militant. They shuttered all of the capital's Caltex stations which service the city's population of almost two million. The company called multiple negotiations but offered little. They were adamant they wanted to conduct a wage survey and delay the process of negotiations again. Negotiations had been ongoing for more than four months already. So workers would not accept a survey or more delays - even when offered cash incentives to return to work. They held solid.
