More than 2,000 Indonesian garment workers have staged a strike to protest at their ill-treatment and unpaid overtime fees. The workers of Katexindo Citra Mandiri have been on strike since 14 May 14, according to the National Front for Indonesian Workers Struggle (FNPBI).

FNPBI leader Dita Sari has said that the factory had forced the mostly female workers to work for more than eight hours a day.

Katexindo is an Indonesian-owned garment factory producing for Gap, Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein.

Dita Sari said: “Workers are being used as milking cows. They will not return to work until their demands for their rights are fully met.”
