NOTICE OF STRIKE: The Notice of strike filed by Xavier University Non-Teaching Employees Labor Union (XUNTELU)- ALU-TUCP is an exercise of its basic right provided for in the Philippine Constitution. The union is always willing to sit down with  XU-Ateneo de Cagayan management to promote industrial peace and  maintain a very harmonious labor management relations!! 

Organized workers of the Jesuit-owned Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan have threatened to go on strike to protest the non-recognition of their leaders as their representatives in negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA). The union accused the university of unfair labor practices, particularly, union-busting.

Lawyer Proculo Sarmen said that the university’s non-teaching workers only wanted Xavier to recognize Jermie Danuco as their union president, and Orlin Torillo as their treasurer.

The Xavier University Non-Teaching Employees Labor Union (XUNTELU) filed a notice of strike with the National Conciliation and Mediation Board (NCMB) on February 28.

Sarmen said the union welcomed the development because the relationship between labor and management at the university “has been greatly mismanaged by the XU Human Relations Department.”

“I hope the labor dispute will be settled peacefully to promote industrial peace,” said Sarmen. But he warned that the workers were “ready for a full-blown legal strike” unless the union’s demand for the recognition of their representatives was met.

“All legal requirements have already been complied with” for a strike, he said. “It’s a basic right provided for in the Philippine Constitution. Just respect the rights of the workers to choose their own representatives in all labor relations proceedings.”
