Thousands of electronics workers lost their jobs due to the sudden closure of Hoya Glass Disk Philippines in the First Philippine Industrial Park (FPIP) in Sto. Tomas, Batangas last April 30, 2014, a day before Labor Day. Workers stormed the National Conciliation and Mediation Board (NCMB) regional office to file cases of illegal closure and union busting against the company. Led by the Kalipunan at Saligan ng Manggagawa sa Hoya Glass Disk Philippines – Independent (KASAMA sa HOGP-Ind), the workers filed a Notice of Strike as concrete action to denounce the closure.
