The 6th of August marks the third month of the illegal dismissal of 24 union leaders by the NXP

Semiconductors Cabuyao Incorporated last May 5 with a caravan to the Light Industry and

Science Park 1 and a march to the company’s plant.

It has been three months since the 24 leaders of the NXPSCI Workers Union were illegally

dismissed as part of the management’s rejection of the workers’ demand for a significant wage hike

and the regularization of contractuals.

 
At a picket in front of the Labor Department’s main office in Intramuros, Manila this morning, leaders of the workers’ union in NXP Semiconductors Cabuyao Incorporated had their heads shaved to protest their illegal dismissal. 
 
The 24 leaders of the NXPSCI Workers’ Union claimed that the company has no right to dismiss them from work since their members cannot be accused of launching illegal strikes on April 9, 17 and 18 and on Labor Day since these dates are regular holidays according to the Labor Department.
