History

AMMPO was organized by SENTRO (SENTRO ng mga NAGKAKAISA AT PROGRESIBONG MANGGAGAWA), a labor center in the Philippines.

In the last quarter of 2014, SENTRO started the contact building in the city center of Kuala Lumpur. Started from 4 to 9 individual DWs, decided to name the association, UniMAD, (United Workers for Mutual Protection, Advancement and Development) on 13 April 2015. UniMAD leaders tried to submit documents to the Philippine Embassy for accreditation/affiliation but was denied. UniMAD members continued  the programs ,services and conducted the monthly regular meeting even after the non-acceptance of the Phil. Embassy.

On 14 Feb 2016, during the meeting of members, it was decided and agreed to change the name Of UniMAD , that was the birth of AMMPO and  decided again to submit the required documents to the Philippine Embassy for affiliation.

On June 19, 2016, AMMPO was officially accepted and recognized as a member of the only federation of filipinos recognized by the Embassy.
