INDONESIA: 5000 Shoe Workers Demand Better Pay, Conditions
The demonstrators, who are employees of shoe maker PT Fortune Mate Indonesia, demonstrated at the company's factory in Tambak Sawah, Rungkut, Surabaya saying that the local labour union and the company had failed to address their grievances.
They called on management to sack the company's human resources development head, Kusnardi, who they blame for reducing their allowances.
The protestors also want the company to reinstate the Rp34,000 monthly menstruation allowance for female workers, which was halted earlier this month, and an increase in their food and transportation allowances.
