Metal Workers Strike in East Java

Kompas is reporting 132 workers have gone on strike at PT Nasional Interindo Metal in Mojokerto, East Java.  The workers went on strike over pay cuts that would reduce their pay, based on per ton production, by over 7%, as well concerns over workers’ right to pray on Fridays, with workers facing fines of nearly a day’s pay if they violated company rules over prayer.  The article does not mention the name of any workers’ organization or trade union involved in the strike.
