Muhaimin Iskandar On Union Busting

The head of the Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration (Menakertrans), Muhaimin Iskandar, said in a meeting earlier this month that he would be stepping up efforts to stop union busting by working with the police, prosecutors, and courts, according to a report on VivaNews.com.  The statement came in a meeting with Federasi Serikat Pekerja Mandiri (FSPM), a union representing hotel, restaurant, and service workers, that is conducting its own campaign against union busting at Grand Aquila Hotel in Bandung, West Java.  Muhaimin Iskandar went on to emphasize the need for unions to take a bipartite approach, rather than attempting to force employers to negotiate.
