Labour strike had minimal impact on textile sector - API

Mar '12
There was a recent one day industrial labour strike in Jakarta, capital of Indonesia. This strike also affected the textile and garment sector. However, a top official of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) says that the impact was minimal.

“This is a common problem in every country between the employers and the employees. We too are experiencing such problems in our textile industry. In and around the hub of Jakarta, textile industry is facing some labor unrest, said Mr Ade Sudrajat, Chairman – API.

He added, “Of course, due to such a situation, investments in this area are not feasible anymore. Some people are even thinking of relocating factories outside Jakarta. Those areas are quieter and more conducive in terms of relations between industry and workers”.

He observed, “We are coming up with some good ideas and solutions to improve the relations between the workers and the industry. We cannot depend on the government decision because it is more of a problem between the family itself i.e., between industry and employees”.

“Hence we need to have better understanding and communication in the future, which is actually the main problem”, he concluded by saying.
