iPhone 6 supplier sacks union leaders
In May, 24 workers in the Philippines who were attempting to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement were sacked by Apple supplier NXP.
The workers were sacked under the pretext that their failure to work on a number of public holidays amounted to an illegal strike.
The 24 fired workers are leading members of a trade union, the MWAP. For months now they have been without work and pay.
NXP is said to have conveyed through the ministry of labour that it wants to try and pay off the illegally sacked workers, effectively removing the trade union leadership from the plant.
As well as being key supplier to Apple, its customers include major employers including Bosch, Continental and Samsung among others.
Sign the petition to demand that Apple tells its supplier NXP Philippines to reinstate the workers who were wrongfully dismissed.
