Indonesia - Agreements ignored (2011)

On 21 January, Itje Julinar, President of Public Services International (PSI) affiliate Serikat Pekerja Angkasa Pura I (SP AP 1 - Airport Services Workers Union), called on State-owned Enterprises (SOE) Minister Mustafa Abubakar to settle unresolved industrial disputes with the union to prevent a strike. According to the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) signed on 1 June 2006, state-owned PT Angkasa Pura (AP), which manages all airports nationwide, agreed to adopt the same pay scale enjoyed by other civil servants, provide pension benefits based on the workers’ last salaries and offer healthcare schemes for retired workers. None of the provisions had been implemented. On 12 August, PSI welcomed the news from SP AP 1 - Airport Services Workers Union that the long-running industrial dispute was nearing an end, following the appointment of a new Board of Directors to the State Owned Enterprise Angkasa Pura 1 (AP1).

On 28 July, 800 dockworkers, led by the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF)-affiliated Serikat Pekerja Terminal Petikemas Koja (SPTPK Koja), the seafarers’ union Kesatuan Pelaut Indonesia and other unions demonstrated outside government offices in Jakarta. The unions demanded that Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH) and state company Pelindo 2, which jointly own the TPK Koja container terminal, implement the terms of a four-point settlement that was negotiated in April 2009.
