NXP-Philippines signed a Collective Bargaining Agreement
 
We are glad to inform the public, especially our supporters, that last September 26, we workers of NXP-Philippines signed a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) with the management of NXP-Philippines, effective for the years 2014-2016. The signing of the CBA marks the end of our recent struggle to secure improvements in our working conditions by securing improvements in the CBA, which was met by the management with the illegal dismissal of 24, or almost all, of our union leaders last May 5, 2014.
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.
