[BREAKING NEWS: The Philippine National Police (PNP) violently dispersed striking workers who wish to air their grievances against Nutri Asia. Tens or twenties have been hurt and arrested.]
Nakawelga ang mga Manggagawa para ipaglaban na maging regular ang 1,400 manggagawang kontraktwal ng #NutriAsia at sa tuluyang pagwawakas ng lahat ng porma ng kontraktwalisasyon sa buong bansa, itaas ang sahod, at mas maayos na kondisyon sa pagawaan.
[Said workers staged a strike in order to push for the regularization of 1,500 workers of Nutri Asia and fight for the end of "contractualization" all over the country. They also push for higher pay and better working conditions.]
Pangako ni Duterte na wakasan ang kontraktwalisasyon pero imbes tupdin ay pasismo't karahasan ang ibinigay sa mga manggagawa.
[President Duterte promised to end "contractualization but, instead of fulfilling said promise, fascism and violence are what he gave these workers.] SOURCE: https://www.facebook.com/Itneg/posts/10214377912913368
