(12/22/2013)

New Year’s revelers in Bali and Java may be celebrating in the dark if power utility workers carry through with their threats to stage a “Black Day” on December 31, 2013.

Suppliers or outsourced companies providing services to the State Power Board (PT PLN) say they will make New Year’s Eve go “dark” if their demands are unmet.

Metronews.com reports that the Fraternal President of the Muslim Workers of Indonesia (PPMI), Ahmad Faud Anwar, repeated the threat on behalf of outsourced workers on Java and Bali that they are prepared to go on strike. Anwar said: “Just imagine if the employees of PLN, Garuda Indonesia and the State Rail Company (PT KAI) refuse to work. What will happen will be a total shut down. We wish to demonstrate that these are the things we run. We have a basic need (to be answered)." 

The union leader's statements were made at the Jakarta Legal Aid Office (LBH) on Saturday, December 14, 2013.

He said workers in Java and Bali were prepared to go on strike.

Ahmad also told how East Kalimantan once undertook a “Black Day” for 10 minutes that caused a total shutdown.

Ahmad went on to explain that the planned action is not sabotage, but the result of needed work procedures that have not been performed. Continuing to underline his threat, he said: “PLN has 700,000 outsourced workers. Imagine if they refuse to work. There will be no need to shut down the power, it will shut down on its own.”

Ahamd explained that the planned “Black Day” is a last ditch effort if demands are not met in negotiations being held in the run up to New Years.

The workers assigned to State-Owned Companies are demanding that the President issue an order in accordance with the recommendations of the Parliamentary Working Committee on Outsourcing and Labor for State-Owned Company.

The workers are also calling on the government to dismiss the Minister for State Owned Enterprises, Dahlan Iskan, and for the House of Representatives (DPR) to form a special legislative committee on outsourcing.
