Hutchison Indonesia


SCROLL DOWN

Hutchison Indonesia


ITF affiliate, Serikat Pekerja Jakarta International Container Terminal (SPJICT), have built up Hutchison’s Jakarta International Container Terminal (JICT) to be one of the strongest performing terminals in Asia, continually lifting productivity to deliver sustained growth for the company, and the Indonesian economy.

But the union – and its members – are under attack from management.

Workers’ wages have been cut by between 15-42% in the last three months, and union members have been specifically targeted – and their jobs threatened – for raising concerns and refusing to bow to management's anti-union attacks. In response to Hutchison’s ruthless attack on workers’ rights at the Port of Jakarta, the ITF is mobilising international support and standing up to ensure that these workers receive the respect and dignity that they deserve.

There are always more ways to treat workers with respect.

There are always more ways to treat workers with respect.

As a result of Hutchison’s refusal to negotiate in good faith, SPJICT has been forced to ramp up its campaign. Union members and their supporters – alongside ITF – have escalated the campaign from the waterfront to Hutchison-owned health and beauty retailer Watsons.

Workers are visiting Hutchison-owned Watsons’ stores across Jakarta to deliver a message that Watsons’ commitment to create a “healthy and supportive environment for all employees” and provide “a working environment that is free from all forms of discrimination” should extend to all workers in the Hutchison network. Indonesian dock workers are hitting the streets to remind the public, and their management, that they deserve respect and dignity.

For the Indonesian public to have any faith in Watsons’ commitments, Watsons should act to help fix this situation and tell Hutchison to respect workers’ rights.
