E-Action: Support Shipyard Workers In The Philippines

Through the Building and Wood Workers International online campaign, you can send a message in support of workers at Hanjin Heavy Industries in Construction in Subic.

From the BWI:

“HHIC-Philippines Incorporated has been notorious for reported violations on occupational health and safety standards that have resulted in numerous documented deaths along with major and minor accidents. Hanjin did not budge even after the Senate Labor Committee looked into the cases of deaths made public by workers, relatives and concerned citizens. It even denied some of the deaths in its report to the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) claiming only 19 of the 29 incidents. The BWI cannot tolerate this,” said Ambet Yuson, general secretary of the BWI. The International is launching a solidarity campaign to support workers at the Hanjin Shipyard Facility in Subic in the Philippines to abide by international labour standards and ensure trade union rights for the workers at Subic.
