Union protest against casual employment and mass dismissal at Phillips Seafood plant in Indonesia
Workers from the Phillips Seafood plant, Lampung, Indonesia are fighting back after 171 workers were brutally sacked between April 27-29. Their bosses just posted a notice on the bulletin board saying workers jobs were terminated. All of the affected workers had been with the company from 3 to 9 years in precarious conditions as daily workers.
On May 4, 2015 the terminated workers with the support of the IUF-affiliated union FSBL, staged a protest outside of the factory gates to demand reinstatement and permanent work status.
