Hundreds of workers from PT Bali Taru Utama, a stationery company located in Tangerang regency, took to the streets to demand that the management abandon outsourcing, which they said was affecting their livelihood.

Demonstrators rallied on the main road leading to the regent'€™s office, hoisting banners protesting against the outsourcing and calling on the management to re-employ three workers who were dismissed for organizing resistance to the policy.

'€œWe demand that the management renew the contracts of the three workers who were fired without clear reasons,'€ rally coordinator Imam Sukars said after speaking at a free speech forum held in front of the regent'€™s office.

In Karawaci, approximately 2,000 workers from PT Sulindafin, a subsidiary of textile company PT Shinta Group, went on strike, demanding the management fulfill their rights, including paying them the regional minimjum wage and social security.
