JAKARTA: More than 1,300 people clashed with security guards at an Indonesian shoe factory which supplies sportswear giants adidas and Mizuno, police said Thursday, months after they were sacked for striking over better pay.
The workers were laid off in July after walking out over demands for back pay following a hike in the minimum wage at the start of 2012.
Confirming the clashes during a rally at which the former workers were calling to be reinstated, Wahyu Widodo, police chief of Tangerang, said police were "helping mediate" between protesters and the owners of the Panarub Dwikarya factory.
