Press Release: PT Smelting Workers’ Rights Denied Following A Negotiation Deadlock

8 February 2021

Lokataru Law and Human Rights Office (“Lokataru”) as the attorney of Pimpinan Unit Kerja Serikat Pekerja Logam Federasi Serikat Pekerja Metal Indonesia (“PUK SPL FSPMI”) urges PT Smelting to fully guarantee the workers’ rights in conformity with the prevailing labor laws and regulations. Lokataru deeply regrets PT Smelting’s violation of workers’ rights, among others, the company’s failure to pay its workers’ Health Social Security Administering Bodies (“BPJS Kesehatan”) and Employment Social Security Administering Bodies (“BPJS Ketenagakerjaan”) premiums. 

PT Smelting is the first copper Smelter Company in Indonesia with Mitsubishi Materials Corporation and Mitsubishi Corporation RTM Japan Ltd., as one of its shareholders. During the negotiation of the Collective Labor Agreement No. 8 (“CLA 8”) between PUK SPL FSPMI and PT Smelting ... both parties did not reach an agreement. As a result, PUK SPL FSPMI carried out a strike which was conducted legally, orderly, and peacefully by informing Gresik Manpower Office (“Disnaker”) and PT Smelting through a written notification.

Subsequently, PT Smelting unfairly dismissed the workers who participated in the strike by issuing Notice of Termination of Employment and alleged such workers to have resigned. ...  


Under the on-going legal and non-legal remedies, we call on Mitsubishi Materials Corporation and Mitsubishi Corporation RTM Japan Ltd, as the majority shareholders of PT Smelting to participate and urge the settlement of PT Smelting labor disputes with its and former employees whose rights have not been fulfilled to this date.
