UNAIR NEWS – In February 2017, the working population in Indonesia has increased to reach 6,130,000 workers. At the same time, the unemployment rate of workers decreased by 0.25 % compared to last August in 2016.
Indonesia’s participation in ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) is a step taken by the government to create jobs. It was done to expand and enhance the value of integration in dealing with the AEC free trade among other ASEAN countries.
Increasing the level of work and the number of jobs is an advantage for Indonesia in joining and optimizing MEA. Furthermore, the existence of these conveniences then raises new problems resulting in gaps between workers.
Dr. Lanny Ramli, S.H., M.Hum said that resolving complicated or time-consuming industrial relations disputes will cause investors to feel uncomfortable.
“This has the potential to reduce the value of an investment in Indonesia so it will also reduce the image of the government which is considered a failure to regulate the work situation in Indonesia,” he said.
In this regard, he continued, simplification and improvement in efficiency need to be done to handle disputes or disputes in industrial relations. In the article, every worker will continue to fight for the right to life, freedom and safety in his role.
“This is in line with three articles in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, where the article discusses the rights and freedoms of every citizen,” he added.
Franklin D. Roosevelt said that there are at least four points which are called fundamental freedoms. It is freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from desire, and freedom from fear.
“These four things are the fundamental or fundamental freedoms that each individual in society has. While other freedoms will increase with the passage of era or environment, “he explained.
In the world of business or industry, relations between workers and managerial industries are very prone to experience friction and inequality. Both parties must be able to find the causes and mutually recognize the root problems and challenges faced by the industrial environment.
“This will certainly be able to create a more active and exploratory work environment in various existing sectors,” he added.
Based on Law Number 13 of 2003 and Law Number 2 of 2004, there are several stages aimed at resolving industrial relations disputes. Among these are the actions of the Bipartite, Tripartite, Mediation, and Industrial Relations Courts.
“Whereas based on the worker’s perspective, the strike action is the last effort after fighting for the fulfillment of rights and settling disputes,” he said.
Acts of attack, anarchy, vandalism, strikes and so on are forms of workers ‘and employers’ protest. Such actions can influence investor confidence and result in the image of the government in tackling industrial relations.
Lanny Ramli hopes that this paper can be used as input to simplify the settlement process. The community will certainly be very happy if in the process of completing it gets a faster solution.
“Likewise, the Manpower Office as a representative of the government is also quicker to get a solution,” he concluded. (*)
