The organizations in Indonesia which have done the most to defend labor rights in Indonesia are the International Labor Organization (ILO) and workers’ organizations. The ILO is an agency which operates under the auspices of the United Nations. It specifies labor standards to be followed around the world. It also provides representatives of workers and employers with an equal voice to those of governments with regard to the creation of the ILO’s policies.
Workers’ organizations are formed for the protection of workers’ rights and interests at both the national and regional level alike. For this reason, a functional society requires active and effective workers’ organizations. Thus, workers’ organizations do much to defend labor rights in Indonesia.
