Adidas clothing factory workers stage rally in Batam
Indonesian workers work at a Adidas shoe factory in Tangerang, Banten province, West Java on March 27, 2006.

Workers of PT Yee Woo, a garment company producing Adidas brand clothing operating in the Tunas Industrial Zone, Batam, Riau Islands, converged on the City Council on Monday to demand protection of their rights after the firm's management ceased operations and fled the city. The company management abruptly shut down operations and abandoned 305 of its employees on January 12.

The workers demanded attention and protection from Commission IV members of the City Council, who had already paid a visit to the factory.

"During a surprise visit a few days ago, Commission IV members promised to monitor the issue, but they have not done anything. We have sent a letter to ask for an update, but we haven't received a reply," said Fendri.
