In October 2010, the US NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a US multinational enterprise had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in the Philippines. 

The US NCP concluded that the specific instance did not merit further consideration at this time, on the grounds that the outcome of union elections was pending.
