WEBINAR SERIES: Towards a Responsible Supply Chain for Electronics – Webinar 3: Trade union rights in the global electronics industry: the case of Indonesia
2nd October 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The right to organise is often denied to workers in the electronics industry. In key electronics production sites like China and Vietnam, the only union that workers are allowed to join is the state-sanctioned union. But even in countries where union rights are protected by law, like Indonesia, workers often find it difficult to exercise this right. This webinar presents field research from Bekasi, Indonesia’s prime industrial area just outside Jakarta. Looking at four different electronic factories, the webinar discusses the multiple barriers workers’ face when they seek to exercise their right to freedom of association and the strategies different Indonesian unions have developed in response.
Speakers: Jeroen Merk (University of Edinburgh), Hari Nugroho (University of Indonesia) & Fahmi Panimbang (LIPS).
Moderator: Dave Gorman (University of Edinburgh).
