Filipinas - Triumph International relocated to avoid union (2010)

On 3 December, two unions representing Triumph International workers, the Bagong Pagkakaisa ng mga Manggagawa sa Triumph International Philippines (BPMTI) or «New Unity of Workers of Triumph International» and the Triumph International (Thailand) Labour Union (TITLU), filed an OECD complaint against the Swiss multinational for laying off thousands of workers at its factories in Thailand and the Philippines. The complaint states that Triumph failed to enter negotiations with the workers’ unions and has, therefore, violated the OECD guidelines for multinational enterprises as well as ILO Convention 158. In the complaint, the unions reveal a hidden agenda of Triumph to get rid of its most outspoken workforce in both countries (see Thailand country report).
