LABOR LEADER’S LIFE UNDER THREAT!

LABOR LEADER’S LIFE UNDER THREAT! Kilusang Mayo Uno Southern Mindanao Chairperson and President of Nagkahiusang Mamumu-o sa Suyapa Farm (NAMASUFA-NAFLU-KMU) VICENTE “BOY” BARRIOS is under death threat from SUMIFRU Contractor JESUS JAMERO. Yesterday, January 27, 2014, at around 1130 am, the workers who just concluded negotiations with Sumifru conducted a picket to force Jamero to comply with payment of backwages due Jan. 25. Until this time, no payment has yet been made. Jamero came out brandishing a .45 calibre gun, fired, and toted the gun at Barrios, threatening to kill him if he did not stop the picket. This is the second attempt on Barrios’ life, the first one was in 2006 when he was ambushed.
