Several labor organization will held labor strikes on several strategic issue on April 30 in Jakarta and several cities such as Serang Banten, Bandung West Java, Semarang Central Java, Surabaya East Java, Jogjakarta, Banda Aceh Aceh, Batam Riau Islands, Medan North Sumatera, Bengkulu, Riau, Palembang South Sumatera, Lampung, Manado North Sulawesi, Makassar South Sulawesi, Gorontalo, Banjarmasin South Kalimantan , Samarinda East Kalimantan, Maluku, and Papua. The demand of labor strikes are avoiding jobs create law or Omnibus Law, labor’s holidays during Covid 19 but their salary must be paid including Eid of Fitri charity (THR) etc. I think their demand has reflected their arrogance, selfish and does not based on true facts.
I think Omnibus Law must be finished by the Indonesia’s House of Representative, because Indonesia needs these law to spur, to boost and to sparkling our next economic development and national prosperity. Because of that, the people of Indonesia will support whatever the National Police’s policy and regulation to overcome the next labor strikes plan. The government of Indonesia is trying to stop Covid 19 spreading around Indonesia, because Indonesia does not have enough time to deal with these viruses. I think the notion of labor leaders such as Said Iqbal, Andi Gani Nuwawea etc have reflected theirself interest because if the next labor strikes will chaotic, it will be taken several seriously impacts including law enforcement process and losing their jobs or PHK. The amount of labor participants on their next strikes are approximately 18.000 persons are not make sense, because several provinces have implemented PSBB. The implementation of PSBB will be followed by the rigid of law enforcement, it must be concerned by the labor. My suggestion to them, do not joint unluckly next strikes. Hopefully.
