Garment workers still fighting for wages in Indonesia

Almost two years ago, 4,000 workers at the PT Jaba Garmindo were left unemployed when their factory closed down suddenly. These workers are still waiting for four months’ worth of unpaid wages as well as termination payments. In total workers are owed almost US$11 million in payments. There is an ongoing international campaign to force UNIQLO, the company sourcing from this factory to pay these workers. This issue is very similar to the one that involves Mizuno, another global fashion brand, over the non-payment of hundreds of its workers at another Indonesian factory.
