Potential Nationwide Strike From Doemstic Workers

From The Jakarta Post:

Activists are calling on all household workers to stop working and march in the streets during the nationwide strike called for May 1-3 to push for the formulation and passage of the domestic worker law.

This protest [is against] the government and the House of Representatives for not responding to our demands on the law,” Lita Anggraini, Domestic Workers Advocacy Network (Jala PRT) coordinator, said during a press conference on the domestic workers law on Monday in Jakarta.

The activist made four demands: The ratification of the 1990 Convention on the Protection of the Rights of Migrant Workers and Their Families; Revision of the 2004 Regulation on Migrant Worker Placement; the formulation and passage of the Domestic Workers Protection Law; and the government’s vote for the ILO Convention on Domestic Workers
