The Jakarta International Container Terminal (JICT) management has issued a warning letter to demand the workers to end their strike, a senior JICT executive has said.

“We have issued the first warning letter ( SP1 ) to call on workers to return to work, because the strike does not favor any party,” JICT vice president director Riza Erivan said in Jakarta on Sunday as reported by kompas.com.

The SP1 is part of the human resources management system and if it is ignored or unheeded, a company can issue second and third warning letter that could end with the workers’ dismissal.

The workers, who have been on strike since Aug. 3, plans to end their action on Thursday.

Riza said the workers who wanted to resume working were required to complete and to sign a form prepared by JICT management that could be submitted by email or through the company's WhatsApp group.

Riza said the management also guaranteed the safety of those workers who returned to work. “We have sterilized the office. They can return to work on Monday (Aug. 7),” he added.

The workers had question the payment of US$80 million in rental fees to state-owned seaport operator PT Pelindo II, which they claimed had caused a drop in their annual bonuses.

Riza explained that payments started in 2015, when an agreement between the two companies went into effect.

Meanwhile, JICT finance director Budi Cahyono said JICT management had paid Rp 47 billion ($3.53 million) of the 2016 bonuses in May 2017. (bbn)
