KMU SOUTHERN MINDANAO IN THE NEWS:

In a press conference yesterday at KMU-SMR office, Olalo disclosed this filing of an illegal dismissal case against the management, saying his dismissal and that of the rest of the members of the union were baseless.

“We are also condemning the harassment of 53 of our fellow workers. That is why we will conduct collective actions such as pickets,” Olalo said during the press conference.

The union leader shared how the unionists got to be in this situation. “We were dismissed for exercising a legitimate right provided under the law – the right to organize and freedom of expression,” Olalo said.
