BINTANGNEWS.com – Gold and copper miner PT Freeport Indonesia (PTFI) employees, who have been on a six-day strike since Sept.28, are calling for equal bonus distribution for workers in all departments in the company’s Grasberg open pit facility in Tembagapura, Papua.She said the work stoppage was launched to protest the company’s policy, which adopted a different bonus standard for workers in different departments. “Open pit workers only get a 17 percent bonus, while geo-tech employees receive higher bonuses, amounting up to 45 percent of their salaries. They are Grasberg workers but in fact, their bonuses are different. This is why they are on strike,” Tri told The Jakarta Post.
