Around 25,000 workers at electronics company PT Maspion went on strike on at the end of February demanding that the company implement a new regional minimum wage.

The strike started after the workers came to the office in the morning to fill out their attendance list.

Some marched to the provincial council building to press for the implementation of the decree.
