Act now and stand with IKAGI workers

news 26 Aug 2019

Our affiliated trade union IKAGI is facing further anti-union behaviour from its employer, Garuda Indonesia. Over the past number of months, Garuda has continued to implement anti-union policies against IKAGI, most recently they have removed the ability for workers to pay their union dues through ‘check-off’. This is yet another tactic the company are using to try and remove IKAGI rather than engage with them in meaningful dialogue. 

So far the ITF has sent numerous letters to both Garuda management and the Indonesian government, but we have received no response. Therefore we are asking you to help IKAGI fight this anti-union behaviour.

Act now and stand with IKAGI workers, here's how: 

  1. Write directly to Garuda Indonesia’s CEO at Please see linked a sample letter that you can use.
  2. Send copies of the letter to both your local Indonesian embassy and local Garuda operations, if there is one in your country.
  3. Send these letters to IKAGI at They will be also sent directly to the Indonesian government in Jakarta.
