New actions in campaign against precarious work at Phillips Seafood plant in Indonesia
Following a mass worker protest on June 10, representatives of the Phillips union and the Lampung Workers' Federation met with local management, who promised conversion to permanent status in 2 weeks. Management also stated that Phillips US Director of Development Strategic Partners & Franchising had cancelled the visit to Lampung.
However the following day the Director came to the factory. During the visit, there was an accident in which a metal rod from a trolley injured a worker's hand. The director came to the factory again on June 12, when the union and federation held another demonstration. The director then left in a hurry, without talking to the union.
