Tribune News - March 8, 2016

Bandung – Workers in the West Java provincial capital of Bandung from the Indonesian Trade Union Congress Alliance (KASBI) protested at the city hall on Tuesday March 8 demanding equal wages for women workers, the abolition of outsourcing and prosperity for workers.

"Coinciding with this March 8, as International Women's Day, we women also have the right to equal wages and prosperity", said one of the women protesters in a speech.

Based on Tribune's observations, a number of police personnel were mobilised to secure the protest action. Several worker representatives also entered the city hall in order to meet with officials and discuss their demands. (ff)
