Jakarta, September 1, 2015 - Total E&P Indonesie (Block Mahakam operator 50%, Inpex 50%), on Tuesday (1/9), in Jakarta, endorsed the Collective Employment Agreement (PKB) for the 2015-2017 Period. The document for the 2015-2017 Collective Employment Agreement was signed by the President & General Manager of Total E&P Indonesie, Hardy Pramono, and the Head of Serikat Pekerja Nasional Total E&P Indonesie (SPNTI – TI National Workers Union), Budi Satria.
The 2015-2017 Collective Employment Agreement is the 7th Collective Employment Agreement of Total E&P Indonesie. The success of the 2015-2017 Collective Employment Agreement compilation shows that communication, dialog and transparency between the Company and the Workers Union in Total E&P Indonesie works very well.
Also attending the signing event were, among others: the Head of Dinas SDM KKKS (PSC Human Resources) of SKK Migas, Muhammad Arfan, and Kasubdit Kesetaraan Syarat Kerja Kementerian Tenaga Kerja RI (Head of Occupational Equivalency Requirements Sub-Service of RI Manpower Ministry), Rudi Kuncoro. The event was also attended by the Government of East Kalimantan, represented by the Head of Manpower & Social Services of Balikpapan, Tirta Dewi, and the Head of Manpower & Transmigration Services of Kutai Kartanegara, Assobirin.
In his address, Hardy Pramono said that amid the uncertainty of the world’s economic situation, Total E&P Indonesie continues to maintain a conducive work environment and manage human resources professionally. “We will prioritize a transparency and dialog culture between the management and workers,” he said.
For Total E&P Indonesie, the Collective Employment Agreement (PKB) is not just a document that should be negotiated normally every 2 years, but a true example of a harmonious industrial relationship between the company and the workers, as it contains values regarding commitment and togetherness to achieve productivity.
The 2015-2017 Collective Employment Agreement (PKB) was compiled in just 8 (eight) days. The relatively short duration of the negotiations was achieved because the members of the negotiation teams prioritized the principles of transparency and togetherness.
Among the several important achievements of the 2015-2017 Collective Employment Agreement (PKB): increased attention given by the company to the work-life balance through the addition of annual leave over the normative stipulation of the manpower law. This Collective Employment Agreement (PKB) also more clearly regulates the rights of the employees in connection with the forthcoming expiration of the Mahakam Block on 31 December 2017, as well as safety aspects, enforcement of organizational rights, and the common commitment to support professional business ethics and avoid conflicts of interest.
