Résumé/Citation: This Act amends the Labor Code (Presidential Decree No. 442; LS 1974-Phi.1A) to overhaul the law governing strikes and to promote collective bargaining and voluntary dispute settlement. It adds a new Title VII-A, "Grievance machinery and voluntary arbitration," to the Code. Fresh provision is made for the National Labor Relations Commission, which is empowered, inter alia, to review cases decided by "labor arbiters". The Bureau of Labor Relations is charged with registering "legitimate trade unions", whose rights are spelled out, and maintaining a file of collective agreements. The amendments set forth procedures to follow in collective bargaining, and increase the term of agreements from three to five years. An employee in regular employment is not to be dismissed except for just cause or as authorised by the new provisions. Written notice of termination is henceforth required. Finally, the Act strengthens protections for wage claims in case of bankruptcy. (LLD-1990/1)
