Garuda Axes 233 Technicians

Holdouts to Joining New Airline Subsidiary to be Fired.

(8/11/2003) Garuda Indonesia has finally decided to fire a remaining 233 technicians who have steadfastly refused to join the Airline's new technical services subsidiary PT Garuda Maintenance Facility Aero-Asia (GMF-AA).

Part of the restructuring and streamlining of debt-ridden Garuda, a new technical services company was established to absorb the entire technical staff and to become an outside contractor to the Airline. Concerned that the change in employers meant less prestige and reduced job security, some of Garuda's technicians resisted the transitions nearly precipitating a strike in May of this year.

The majority of the technicians have now accepted the reassignment and the remaining hold-out group of 233 will now be terminated and given payouts in accordance with Government labor laws.
