Indonesian workers battling paper and pulp giant once again

Indonesian paper workers at one of the world’s largest paper mills have begun a one-month strike over wages and conditions. The strike was in response to Asia Pulp and Paper management breaking off collective bargaining talks and its use of local army units and police to intimidate workers. Non union labour has been brought in to break the strike by the company. Asia Pulp and Paper is one of the biggest paper companies in the world, and has a history of anti worker tactics. To increase our effectiveness, we need to coordinate our actions against such companies at a global level. source:::http://www.aawl.org.au
