COCA-COLA Bottlers Philippines, Inc. Wins CA Ruling on Employee Bonuses

COCA-COLA Bottlers Philippines, Inc. has again won a Court of Appeals (CA) ruling, this time over its decision to stop paying bonuses to employees at its Santa Rosa, Laguna plant from 2008 to 2010. In a 16-page decision, the appellate court's Special Fourteenth Division reversed an earlier ruling of the Labor Arbiter ordering Coca-Cola to grant the bonus request of 90 employees. The labor union contended that from 1997-2007, the employees had been receiving bonuses. The employees had argued that the bonuses, which were not covered by their collective bargaining agreement, had become a "demandable right" by reason of long-time company practice. Coca-Cola contends that such bonuses were not consistently and uniformly given to employees. But the CA ruled that a bonus is not a demandable and enforceable obligation. The CA also said that the labor arbiter was wrong to determine that the yearly bonus from 2008 to 2010 should be equivalent to two-thirds of the basic monthly pay of the employees.

The Court of Appeals Rules in Favor of Coca-Cola Bottlers Philippines, Inc

The court of Appeals has ruled in favor of Coca-Cola Bottlers Philippines, Inc., sanctioning the company's 2009 mass dismissal of 276 employees. In a 16-page decision, the appellate court's Eighth Division dismissed a claim of unfair labor practice against Coca-Cola Bottlers filed by the company's Sales Force Union, saying that Coca-Cola's move to dismiss the employees was made 'for legitimate business considerations.' The labor union had contended that the dismissal was illegal because there was no prior notice to the Department of Labor and Employment. The union also said that its employees were left with no choice but to accept the company's offer of separation pay with reservation to question the validity of their mass dismissal from service. The dismissed employees had then asked the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC) in 2010 to reinstate them. They also asked for full back wages and moral and exemplary damages. But the NLRC ruled against the union in a resolution in 2010 due to lack of merit. The union filed a motion for partial reconsideration, but was denied. The union then elevated the case to the Court of Appeals, seeking to reverse the decision of the NLRC.
