As workers launch the strike for one month (during May), Freeport Indonesia would see a 50% drop in production. Freeport’s workers opted to launch strike as they are demanding Freeport’s management to re-employ workers who have been facing the termination of working contracts. Freeport managed to terminate contracts for some workers following the export ban policy issued by the Government of Indonesia in few months ago. Freeport’s daily normal production reaches 180,000 ore. But now Freeport has gained export permit in April 21, 2017, to export 22,000 tons to China and 22,000 tons to Japan. Freeport in the meantime is also proposing the contract extension to 2041.
