House, unions team up to discuss labor provisions in omnibus bill on job creation

first_imgWilly, a NasDem Party politician, said the labor groups had put forward points to be discussed, including issues surrounding foreign labor permits, wages, job security and severance pay.”There are nine issues that we will be discussed later from Aug. 20 to 21,” Willy said, adding that the results of the discussion would be used by the lawmakers in the deliberation of the provisions with the government.He noted that substantial points on the problem inventory list (DIM) had been deliberated, as there were only about 1,900 remaining problems, including the labor provisions, to be discussed.Lawmakers, however, did not have a specific deadline to resolve the draft bill although the government had expressed hope for the House to finish the deliberation in August or September, Willy said. The House of Representatives and labor unions have formed a team to discuss labor provisions in the controversial omnibus bill on job creation following the unions’ demand for the government and lawmakers to drop the provisions in the bill.House Deputy Speaker Sufmi Dasco Ahmad, who initiated the formation of the team on Aug. 11 during the first meeting between the lawmakers and leaders of the unions, said the House Legislation Body’s (Baleg) deputy chairman, Willy Aditya, would lead the team.”The team consists of members of the bill’s working committee from Baleg and the unions’ representatives,” said the Gerindra Party politician on Tuesday.
