Indonesia - Accor hotel attacks union members (2013)

Workers employed at Ibis Tamarin in Jakarta established a union in August 2012 and subsequently requested recognition and collective bargaining negotiations.

In July and November 2013, the union made demands to management concerning unpaid overtime, unfair distribution of service charges and the conversion of contract workers’ jobs to permanent positions. The company responded with discriminatory tactics towards union members. Contract workers were told their contracts would not be renewed because of their union membership on 26 and 28 November.

In December, workers in the housekeeping department were told to resign from the union. Two union members were coerced to sign false statements stating they were forced to join the union and regretted this. The union president remains unjustly suspended from work.
