A change in the policy on the service charge distributed to staff at the Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Monument has resulted in a strike by the monument park's some 350 workers, commencing Friday, June 28, 2002.
Changes in policies introduced by the new managers of the Park to increase working hours from the current 5 day week and cut the service charge from 10 to 5% scheduled to take effect from 01 July 2002, have been rejected by the employees.
Talks to resolve the issue still remained at an impasse on Saturday, June 29, 2002. Although the public continues to visit the popular tourist attraction, the Bali Post reports that striking staff have threatened to blockade the road leading into the Park.
