Union Busting Hotel

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 19, 2009

I would not recommend that you stay at the Grand Aquila, which is in the middle of a tense and long-running labour dispute. In October 2008, 137 of the workers at the hotel were terminated from their employment beacuse they formed a trade union. All they wanted was to negotiate better wages and conditions, instead they were kicked out from the hotel and have had to live without any income for nearly a year. There is a permanent protest outside the hotel, the workers have set up a union tent which partially blocks the entrance gate and shows support for their struggle from around the world.

The workers have also established a 'Solidarity Cafe' next to the hotel. A place to hang out and show your support for their cause. Now this is worth a visit! Great food, and reasonable beer. You can find it at:

Bale Juleha (union meeting point)
Pujasera Pasteur Complex
Jl. Dr. Djundjunan 123
Bandung 40173, Indonesia

If you go to the cafe, take a few minutes to see the workers in the tent too. They will be pleased to see you and more than happy to share their story.
