Workers at Coca-Cola Indonesia again confirm their confidence in victimized union leaders

Workers at Coca-Cola Indonesia fighting for independent and democratic unions have again confirmed their confidence in union leaders victimized by management. At a general membership meeting on February 5, Lutfi Arifiyanto was re-elected chairman of the independent SBMCC, the union of workers at Coca-Cola Indonesia in Bawen, Java.

Three days after the union elected him chairman at its founding assembly in February 2017, Lutfi was informed of his transfer to a distribution facility some 170 kilometers from the Bawen plant. He refused the transfer because it violated his members' fundamental right to freely elect their union leadership. As a result of his refusal to have these internationally recognized rights stripped away he was formally terminated on November 21, 2017.

Sovi Fradina responded by sharing information on separation pay according to the law and how these legal entitlements are calculated.

By issuing a third warning letter (and bypassing a first and second warning letter), management declared this a serious offence that will lead to suspension and possibly termination at any time in the next six months, up until April 19, 2019.
