印尼的罢工有望尽快解决

SMM网讯: 全球贸易劳工联盟(IndustriALL Global Union)代表世界范围内的工会,敦促自由港麦克莫兰公司(Freeport McMoRan Inc .)的印尼子公司立即恢复数千名被解雇工人的工作岗位,并呼吁以谈判的手段来解决这场发生在世界第二大铜矿的罢工事件。

上周五自由港在雅加达经过与政府官员和公司高管讨论后,在声明中表示要求旗下的子公司PT冶炼厂(在印尼的唯一一家铜冶炼厂)撤销对300名员工解雇的决议。

“我们敦促双方选择谈判之路,因为这从根本上符合所有利益相关者的利益,” 全球贸易劳工联盟(IndustriALL)表示。该组织及隶属工会声称代表世界范围内的5000万名成员,愿意帮助各方找到解决方案。

5月1日,在巴布亚省(Papua) 的巨型格拉斯伯格(Grasberg)铜金矿的罢工开始,工人们抗议裁员和自行休假,并阻碍了生产。日前政府授予自由港以临时许可证,从而利于其在更广泛的谈判经营条件下恢复铜精矿的出口。 今年早些时候,摩根大通(JPMorgan Chase&Co.)将格拉斯伯格(Grasberg)铜矿的争端定位是对全球铜供应的最大威胁。

印尼子公司企业通讯方面的副总裁Riza Pratama在上周五的一份电子邮件声明中指出,自由港麦克莫兰公司(freeport – Mcmoran)将继续与工人和工会进行讨论。Pratama表示“我们非常重视在所有就业事宜上保持一种开放的对话,并优先考虑工人的福利。公司会继续与工人代表和工会交流沟通,听取他们的意见并分享其观点”。而董事副总裁桑托索(Prihadi Santoso)在电话中说PT冶炼厂将通过劳资关系法庭解决这个纠纷。

全球最大的上市铜矿商自由港(Freeport)于今年6月表示,其已辞去4000名缺勤矿工,其中包括1000名承包商。据该公司称,该项目去年年底约有3.3万名员工。Pratama说,自由港旗下的PT公司 “是根据规章制度以及工会和公司之间的集体劳动合同来处理这些事项的。虽然这对于许多旷工很久的工人来说是一个不幸的结果,但是之前公司已经做出多次努力要求其返回工作岗位而未果”。

公司的首席执行官理查德·阿德克森(Richard Adkerson)在7月时表示,矿上没有发生总的罢工。有超过2.5万名员工没有参与旷工并仍在继续工作着,此外,矿井正在逐步恢复正常运作。

全球贸易劳工会(IndustriALL Global Union)也敦促能源矿产资源部和人力资源部门相关人员加倍努力,从而促进这一问题的解决。

Freeport Urged to Reinstate Workers to End Strike in Indonesia

By Yoga Rusmana and Eko Listiyorini

(Bloomberg) -- IndustriALL Global Union, that represents labor unions worldwide, urged Freeport McMoRan Inc.’s Indonesian unit to reinstate immediately thousands of fired workers and called for talks to resolve a strike at the world’s second- largest copper mine.

The group also asked PT Smelting, an affiliate of Freeport that runs the only copper smelter in Indonesia, to take back about 300 fired workers, it said in a statement in Jakarta on Friday after meeting government officials and company executives.

“We urge both companies to instead choose the path of negotiation, which ultimately will serve the interests of all their stakeholders,” IndustriALL said. The group and affiliated unions, which claim to represent 50 million members worldwide, are willing to help parties find a resolution, it said.

The stoppage at the giant Grasberg copper and gold mine in Papua province started May 1 as workers protested layoffs and enforced furloughs, hampering production. The government had just awarded Freeport an interim permit to export concentrate amid a broader negotiation over operating terms. JPMorgan Chase & Co. earlier this year called the disputes at Grasberg the biggest threat to global supply.

Freeport-McMoRan will continue discussions with workers and the labor union, Riza Pratama, vice president of corporate communications at the Indonesian unit, said in an emailed statement Friday. PT Smelting will resolve the issue through the industrial relations court, Vice President Director Prihadi Santoso said by phone.

“We place great importance in maintaining an open dialog on all employment matters and prioritizing our workers’ welfare,” Pratama said. “We continue to communicate with our workers’representatives and labor unions to hear their concerns and share our views.”

Fired Workers

Freeport, the world’s largest listed copper miner, said in June it had terminated 4,000 absent workers, including 1,000 contractors. The project had about 33,000 staff at the end of last year, according to the company.

PT Freeport Indonesia “is guided by the laws and regulations governing such matters, as well as the Collective Labor Agreement between the labor union and the company,” Pratama said. “In this case, resignations were an unfortunate consequence for a number of workers who had prolonged absenteeism from work despite multiple efforts and requests by the company to return to work.”

Chief Executive Officer Richard Adkerson said in July there was no general strike at the mine. More than 25,000 of the staff were not involved in absenteeism and continue to work, he said on a conference call, adding the miner was getting back toward normal operations.

IndustriALL urged the Energy and Mineral Resources and Manpower Ministries to redouble their efforts to facilitate a resolution.
