Indonesia - Dismissal for union activity (2011)

Muhamad Husen is a member of the Framas Plastic Technology (FPT) Ltd union and works at the German-owned company in Jakarta. On 23 July, Husan questioned FPT company officials about a leaflet being distributed by company supervisors that called on FPT union members to stop paying union dues. When Husen asked who was responsible for the distribution of the flyer, the only response was that “it came from the top.” Because the company would not tell him who was responsible, he referred to company officials as “cowards”. The company dismissed Mr. Husen from his job on 30 July without providing any reason.
