Philippines: Undermining workers’ rights: Labour rights abuses in nickel supply chains: Executive summary

Index Number: ASA 35/4472/2021

This document provides a summary of the report (available at ASA 35/4389/2021) in which Amnesty International raises serious concerns about rights at work for workers in the nickel mining sector on Dinagat Island in the Philippines. This report outlines numerous examples of workers being employed without contracts, the delayed payment of wages and the non-payment of compulsory employee benefits such as health insurance. While Amnesty International is particularly concerned about the practices of the labour-hire companies through which mining company workforces are employed, there are also clear implications for the mining companies themselves.
