#BoycottJollibee. Today, terminated workers of Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) under the Samahan ng Manggagawa sa JFC (SM-JFC) called on the public to refrain from eating at Jollibee and its subsidiaries after their management remained silent to their demands for reinstatement and regularization.

Protesting workers were camping outside JFC’s main warehouse along the West Service Road in Parañaque City since June 28 after JFC terminated its agency contracts with Toplis Solutions and Staff Search Agency, service contractors in the said warehouse, that resulted to the mass lay-off of workers.

“We humbly ask the public and loyal customers of JFC across the country and even overseas not to support its products for the meantime until Tony Tan Caktiong will have a heart and will listen to our demands and until JFC will learn how to follow orders of the Labor Department and our government regarding the regularization of its workers,” said Rogelio Magistrado, president of SM-JFC.
