A strike staged by some 155 employees of the Kamandalu Resort and Spa, north of Ubud, entered its second week on Friday, December 19, 2003. As a result, the Owners of the Hotel announced that their next step would be to formally terminate the striking employees, paying termination and severance pay in accordance with the rules set forth by the Department of Manpower.
Like many other hotels in Bali, the Resort was already suffering significant financial hardships prior to the strike. Unable to service existing equity loans, the Hotel is under the supervision of the Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency.
The striking employees of the Resort have resisted calls from the local Gianyar Government, the Bali Manpower Office, and the Hotel's owners that they return to work pending the mediation of their various demands.
