Welgang Bayan: Empowering Labor Unions against Poverty and Repression

Welgang Bayan: Empowering Labor Unions against Poverty and Repression By UP Press
Item #: 9715426749

How do workers respond if management denies them the right to organize, to speak, and to strike?

What pretexts do employers use to get away with their union-busting and witch-hunting for progressive elements on the payroll?

How do government mandates meant to quell union activities instead fan the fire of discontent and spur the spread of protests?

What factors innate to the Philippine colonial economy nurture the steady growth of radicalism and militancy in the labor sector?

WELGANG BAYAN answers these questions by following the trade union movement from 1972 to 1984 as it braves the martial law years; celebrates May 1 milestones; metamorphoses into the BMP, TUCP, and KMU, among others; and struggles for both workers’ rights and rewards—from the tiny shops along Avenida Rizal to the export processing zones, from the batilyos’ indignation Mass in Navotas to the legendary strike at La Tondeña—and along the way, leaves lessons for all employees, employers, labor leaders, and legislators today.
