Union decries ‘unfair’ dismissal in sexual harassment case

After two employees from the University Hotel were fired due to complaints of sexual harassment, the University Hotel Worker’s Union (UHWU) said they have not been fairly represented in the case and that the decision was not “humane.”

In protest, union members hung a tarpaulin along Aglipay street, in front of the University Hotel, which reads, “Dr. Grace Gregorio Union Buster ng UHWU.”

It has since been removed by order of the Resident Manager.
