Indonesia: Phillips Seafood workers continue fighting for permanent employment
Members of the IUF-affiliated SBPSI representing workers at the Phillips Seafood plant in Lampung, Indonesia, held a mass demonstration in front of the factory on May 24, with support from the Lampung Workers’ Union Federation. The union continues to fight for permanent positions for over 100 workers, mostly women, many of whom have worked at the facility for up to 15 years without a permanent employment contract. The workers are also demanding basic improvements to working arrangements, including the provision of transport by the company.
US-based Phillips Seafood includes a chain of seafood restaurants and branded retail products.
