Editor’s note: We received this information from PALEA via Facebook:
PLEASE READ: For the information of all friends, family and everyone. The truth is.. our fellow Ground Crew is not on strike. Actually they are inside the airport right now WILLING TO WORK. BUT their access sa computer, phones, radios, and etc were removed by the management which is the cause of this chaos. obviously, they could not work without those access. Pal management just decided to cancel all flights. Eto lang po ang katotohanan. Please repost this to help our fellow brothers and sisters who are actually now harassed by the management and apparently fighting for thier jobs and future of their little ones. Thank you. Msc Council Palea
The Philippine Airlines Employees Association is currently having a dispute with Philippine Airlines management. PAL Management blames PALEA lockout for cancelled flights today.
