tough situation, because the employer might retaliate if you file a complaint. but you are entitled to go to DOLE and report the situation so they can check on the company, or even file a complaint to be declared a regular employee and money claims for the allowances

Reclusion Perpetua
You can try enforcing the previous contracts that you signed. They will have a hard time proving that the per-trip allowance was just a mistake, considering that it both parties have been signing it for three consecutive years already. You can easily establish that the terms were consensual, and regularly agreed upon. What is clear is that you have a claim based on an actionable document, and they have a defense that is based only on their saliva.
