Case Digest on VH Manufacturing, Inc. v. NLRC, G.R. No. 130957, January 19, 2000- Labor Law

 

Q: Company Y is engaged in road construction projects of the government.  It engaged the services of certain workers to work on various projects on different dates.   Several of its workers joined Union A as members.  Union A filed a motion for certification election with the regional office.  Company Y opposed stating that the workers were project employees and not qualified to form part of the rank and file collective bargaining unit.  Later, Company Y terminated the employment of the workers due to the completion of its projects or the expiration of worker’s contracts.   The affected workers claimed they were dismissed because of their union activities; and thus staged a strike.  The strike was declared illegal and the workers were deemed to have lost their employment status.  Were the workers validly dismissed?

 

A: Yes.  The contracts of employment of petitioners attest to the fact that they were hired for specific projects and their employment was coterminous with the completion of the project for which they had been hired.  Also, they were informed in advance that said project or undertaking for which they were hired would end on a stated or determinable date.  Since the workers were project employees, their employment legally ended upon completion of their respective projects.
