Garment workers demand salaries

The Jakarta Post
City News - June 11, 2007

TANGERANG: Some 300 workers of garment producer PT Miju went on strike Saturday, accusing the company of failing to pay their May salaries on June 5 as promised.

"We only received part of our April salary, but the company had promised to give us full payment for the May salaries," said one of the striking workers, Hamdan.

He said they had received just 10 percent of their April salaries, which range between Rp 650,000 (US$73.80) and Rp 700,000.

Factory manager Eka Muryati said the company was facing financial problems because of falling export orders.

"We will likely be unable to pay the workers their salaries before June 12 because we have no money now," she said, adding that the company was on the verge of bankruptcy as a result of the losses it has been experiencing. -- JP
