THE DEMONSTRATION Blamed the Governor’s policy Cq. The Provincial
Manpower and Transmigration Office should not have happened if all parties
understood the rules regarding the determination of district/city Sectoral
Minimum Wages.

Head of the Central Sulawesi Public Relations and
Protocol Bureau, Drs. Moh. Haris Kariming stressed the need for all parties to
reopen the rules governing UMSK. According to him, if you look at the
chronology of the proposed increase in the determination of Morowali District
UMSK, it is not procedural.

“There are some rules that are not
implemented in the proposal that seems unilateral or do not involve leading
sector companies as the parties that must be involved in the formulation of the
UMSK proposal, ” said Haris Kariming.

He said, currently the Central Sulawesi provincial
government has not set Morowali’s Sectoral District Minimum Wage (UMSK) because
there are still objections from several companies over the increase in the

“Meanwhile, during the meeting at the
Morowali Regent Office meeting room, on Thursday, January 24, 2018, only the
regent, Apindo, the trade/labor union attended. The company should be invited
and consulted. At that time there was no involvement of the company, ‘said Karo
Public Relations.

Furthermore Karo Humas explained, based on the
Minister of Manpower Regulation in 2018, regarding minimum wages article 15
paragraph (5) it was stated that: In the case of superior sectors, the Regency
/ city wage council submits the results of the study of business associations
in the sector and trade unions in the sector concerned to negotiate:

a. Companies that fall into the category of
superior sectors concerned; and
b. Nominal UMSK

Furthermore, in the letter of the Morowali Regent
number 848/1218 / BUP-TND / XII / 2018, dated December 26, 2018, regarding the
recommendation for the establishment of Morowali UMSK in 2019, which was
conveyed to the Governor of Central Sulawesi, it was clear that the
negotiations referred to in the article above were not carried out.

“Evidently, PT IMIP, which is a leading
sector company that has substantial work and several other companies in
Morowali, protested against the proposed 20 percent increase from UMSK in
2018,” said Haris.

Related to the determination of the proposal of
UMSK Morowali in 2019, Referring to article 16 paragraph (2) of the Minister of
Manpower Regulation of the Republic of Indonesia in 2018 concerning minimum
wages, it was stated that: In the case of negotiations that do not reach an
agreement, the Governor cannot determine UMSK.

After returning the proposed UMSK to the Regent,
if there is no agreement between the trade union/labor union and the company in
the superior sector, then according to article 16 paragraph (3) of the Republic
of Indonesia Labor Regulation Number 15 in 2018, there are two ways that can be

a. For regions that have not had UMSK in the
previous year, the same applies to the current UMSK.

b. For regions that have already established UMSk
in the previous year, UMSK applies the previous year, if 
the amount is higher
than the current MSE, or applies the same as MSEs in the current year, if the
previous UMSK is greater than the current UMK.

It should be noted, for the case of Morowali
district, UMSK for the mining sector in 2018 amounted to Rp2,902,600 and MSE in
2019 amounted to Rp2,551,463. thus if there is no agreement from the results of
Bipartite (Negotiations) of trade unions with the company, then the value of
UMSK that applies to 2019 should be the same as the value of UMSK in 2018,
which is IDR 2,902,600, there is no increase.

In this regard, the Central Sulawesi provincial
government, through the Manpower and Transmigration Office, will mediate by
inviting the Morowali District Government and the parties including the
Provincial Wage Council to find a joint solution. It is planned that the
meeting will be held on Monday, January 28, 2019, at the Central Sulawesi
Office of the National Housing Agency.

For this reason, in the name of the provincial
government, Karo Public Relations Protocol requested that all parties including
workers to remain calm and be patient. The government will try to find the best
solution for all parties.**
