Welcome to the Kilusang Mayo Uno (May First Movement)

Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU) is an independent and democratic labor center promoting genuine, militant and anti-imperialist trade unionism. It is genuine because it recognizes the struggle between labor and capital and is faithful to upholding the interests of the working class; militant because it relies on the workers’ collective struggle in defending trade-union and democratic rights; and anti-imperialist because it seeks to end imperialist domination and control over the Philippines.

In particular, KMU aims to protect and promote workers’ right to employment, wage, humane working conditions, and their right to form unions, bargain collectively and strike; and heighten workers’ political awareness and class consciousness through massive education, organizing and mobilization in and out of the workplace.
