Workers Protest Nike in Indonesia

Thousands of Workers Demand Nike Scrap Plans to Cut Shoe Orders From Indonesian Suppliers

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) -- Factory workers demonstrated outside Nike Inc.'s Indonesian headquarters on Monday, demanding the shoemaker scrap plans to cut orders from two local suppliers.
Workers said 14,000 jobs will be threatened if Nike reduces orders from producers PT Hardaya Aneka Shoes Industry and Nagasakti Paramashoes Industry.

Protesters wearing blue uniforms waved banners. One said "Nike Lies."

In a statement, Nike said it is increasing manufacturing in Indonesia but was scaling back orders from the two producers because of
"consistent inability to meet the company's minimum product quality and delivery standard for two years."

Nike, which is based in Beaverton, Ore., said it will continue to source 20 percent of its footwear manufacturing in Indonesia, but will phase out supplies from the two factories over the next nine months.

"Nike will work with union representatives from both factories to assist in educating workers on their legal rights," it said.

A representative of the workers said their position was explained to Nike officials during talks, but that no agreement was reached on their demands.

Agus Darsono, a floor supervisor at one of the two manufacturers, said the demonstrators "reject Nike's plans to cut production." He spoke over the din of chants from the crowd gathered at the Jakarta Stock Exchange where Nike has its offices.

"The quality of our shoes is good. Workers have been trained at the factory in Vietnam," he said.

Nike is the primary client of the two factories. Its move to cut orders could effectively kill production.

Cutting production at Nagasakti Paramashoes Industry from 650,000 pairs per month to 200,000 by early 2008 "could send us home," Agus said.

Nike has been active in Indonesia since 1989. There are 115,000 Indonesian workers employed by contract factories manufacturing Nike products.

The chart above compares 1996 (pre krismon) with 2002 and 2006. Basically it compares Suharto's, Megawati's and Yudhoyono's goverments.

Just work harder guys. And remember one of the most important things in Western adat: If you do something, do it well. It doesnt work in your country like this, but in most modern countries this is how the market works. And dont take the victim role. This is completely the fault of the managers of this PT Hardaya Aneka Shoes Industry. Blame them!


Gracias. Sama sama

Guys Indonesia progress is nice. But not the nice progress whe have seen during the mid 90's. Indonesia had the ability to produce but also finance projects like the IPTN 250, the Mobil Murah Masyakyat (not the Timor Car).

The added value of an economy is to produce something. Not simply selling natural resources. And the policy of the technocratic minded BJ Habibie showed how to reform the Indonesian economy from an natural resources based one to a more technology based. With the end of the Orde Baru and the rediculous demands by the IMF this technology vision is gone.

Indonesia should halt the import of rice, sugar. The monopoly of Bulog should be revived. The financial sector should be closed again for foreign investors and the luxury tax should be revived again. This will cause Indonesia to be less dependent on foreign parties.

The privatisation of the banks and the state owned enterprises is a solution for the short-term. But on the long term it are the Indonesians who should produce and participate. And if all banks are owned by foreigners the situation gets unhealthy.

I see economic growth but I miss the right wing sound of the Soeharto administration. In a country with 230 million citizens and endless natural resources there is no need to open up the economy for foreign parties.
What I liked of the Orde Baru regime was the domination of the Indonesian companies. And now after Reformasi many foreign parties entered Indonesia.
It doesn't matter to what level the economy can grow but too many foreign parties is not the way how it should be.

It's nice the economic figures but not as nice as under Soeharto.


For a technocratic Indonesia with foreign investors but not foreign owned Indonesian companies
