Laid-off PAL workers seek the Pope's help 'to achieve a just conclusion' to their labor dispute with the Philippines' flagship carrier
Assistant State Prosecutor III Diosdado Bernales Solidum Jr was caught extorting P2.5 million from members of the Philippine Airlines Employees Association
(UPDATED) The NBI arrests a prosecutor accused of extortion. Justice Secretary Leila de Lima says she 'authorized' the entrapment.
The PAL Employees Association (Palea), however, welcomes the tycoon's impending departure, suggesting that the flag carrier is better off without him
The appellate court says PAL's decision to reduce its workforce was done in good faith and not for the purpose of or circumventing the rights of employees
Since its members were "locked out" from their jobs in 2011 PALEA maintains a protest camp. Morale remains high at the camp.
