Indonesia: Terminated workers of Uniqlo's Jaba Garmindo factory demand payment of wages; company responds

A report alleges that former workers of Uniqlo's Jaba Garmindo factory are still demanding payment of their wages despite having been terminated three years ago. The report notes that Uniqlo and other major buyers withdrew orders from factory without warning or explanation. This resulted to the termination of many workers. 

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Uniqlo to respond. The report and Uniqlo's/Fast Retailing's response are linked below.

In October 2018, two garment workers, part of a group of 2000 workers from Indonesia, travelled to Japan to call on Uniqlo to pay the workers' compensation. The press release is available below. It asks supporters to leave an English message on Uniqlo's facebook page or Twitter.

A video released in 2020, highlighting this case, shows the impact of wage theft on garment workers.
