Indonesia - Legal strikes difficult in practice (2010)

Since the procedures for mediating a labour dispute are both excessively cumbersome and time consuming, they are often ignored by union leaders. Hence the government declares most strikes as illegal job actions, which results in mass dismissals of union officials and workers as well as the arrest and imprisonment of union leaders. Strikes have also been entirely prohibited in the public sector, in essential services, and at enterprises that serve the public interest.
