Indonesia: Every child must go to school – ICTSI must stop targeting union members

In partnership with the International Transport Workers Federation, a global federation of 690 unions representing over 4.5 million transport workers in 153 countries .

Right now in Indonesia children have been forced to drop out of school because ICTSI – one of the world's most profitable stevedoring companies – is targeting their parents for joining their union’s fight for a living wage.

ICTSI is systematically undermining the wages and conditions at the waterfront in Jakarta, forcing workers into long, unsafe overtime simply to earn a living wage. FBTPI union members have been denied overtime by the company, and many are now unable to meet their basic expenses, resulting in workers taking children out of school and being evicted from their homes. ICTSI is punishing these workers for standing up.

Every child should go to school. Every worker deserves to live with dignity. No child should be punished because their parent is standing up for their rights.

Join us and demand that ICTSI pay fair wages and stop targeting union members and their families!
