Feb 20, 2018 – VOLUNTARY RESIGNATION SCHEMES MEANT TO BUST THE UNION
Grabe! Despite the AMAPO/Hanjin MOA, Hanjin continues trying to undermine the union, say our Hanjin correspondents.
This call for voluntary resignation appears to offer incentives for workers with long years of service to opt for early separation.
The real aim however is to get rid of workers who have experienced low wages and really bad working conditions in the company for many years – who else, but the union members.
The MOA says Hanjin and AMAPO will discuss and decide together who goes first when there is a real need to trim the workforce because of exigencies of the service.
Well, without consultations, Hanjin contractors have gone ahead and are offering sweet deals on voluntary resignation. These would have been welcome, if the contractors’ intentions were good, but they are not, and their vile objectives are not misunderstood [apologies to Santa Esmeralda].
The union says these schemes will fail, and the unions will maintain their majority or will reach majority within the year.
