While airport workers employed by Angkasa Pura - the management company running most of Indonesia's airports across the Country have staged protests, threatened strikes and industrial actions in support of better benefits and pay, the more than 1,200 workers at Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport have signed a public statement committing not to undertake any steps that would disrupt service to the public.

Responding to appeals to help preserve the Island's tourism industry and in the face of threats from their employers of strong sanctions, including termination, the union members issued a formal statement in support of their co-workers at other airports but pledged not to strike in Bali due to the overwhelming dependence of the local economy on tourism.

To underline this commitment, a published statement signed by Angkasa Pura's, Drs. I Nyoman Suwetia Putra, and the Head of the Bali airport workers' union, Slamat Riyadi, appeared in Bali's major newspapers pledging:

ē Not to do anything that would disturb safety and operations, such as protests or strikes, because such actions are "forbidden under the law."

ē To safeguard and protect Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport to allow for the continuing development of the Island's tourism industry.

ē To support Visit Indonesia Year 2008.

Suwetia told the Bali Press: "Bali has suffered two bombings, so let's not have strike actions that add to the misery of Bali's tourism. We firmly forbid all employees to strike and disrupt flight operations."

In response to demands for higher wages, Suwetia explained that he is seeking to increase wages by 20% and hopes to have a final decision from his Directors on that matter by May 15, 2008.
