Indonesien: Streik der Golarbeiter

27.10.2011 – Aus Indonesien erhielten wir folgenden Bericht (weiter unten im Originaltext auf englisch). Hier einige übersetzte Auszüge:
Die GSBI aus Indonesien (Gabungan Serikat Buruh Independent, Federation of Independent Trade Unions) drückt ihre Solidarität mit dem Streik der Arbeiter in den Goldminen von Freeport in Papua aus. Ein erster Streik hat in diesen Minen im Juli 2011 stattgefunden.


Der zweite wird seit dem 15.9. geführt, weil die Verhandlungen zu einem
Stillstand gekommen waren. Die Gewerkschaft, die diesen Streik führt,
ist eine unternehmerfreundliche Gewerkschaft. Der Streik ist nicht nur
wegen der ökonomischen Forderungen der Arbeiter wichtig, sondern es geht
auch um Papuas Souveränität und gegen die Vorherrschaft der USA.

PT Freeport ist der weltgrößte Bergbaukonzern und beutet die
Naturschätze aus. Sie zerstören die Umwelt und bedeuten Elend für die
Menschen in Indonesien.
Auf alle Forderungen, die von den Menschen in Papua an Freeport gestellt
wurden, wurde mit Gewalt und Konflikten reagiert. Der Staat hat Angst
vor PT Freeport und traut sich nicht, ihnen etwas entgegenzusetzen.
GSBI ist der Meinung, dass die Forderungen nach Lohnerhöhung, gleicher
Bezahlung und besseren Arbeitsbedingungen gerechtfertigt sind und den
Gesetzen entsprechen, ebenso wie auch der Streik. PT Freeport dagegen
will es so aussehen lassen, als wäre der Streik nicht rechtens. GSBI hat
aber Informationen, aus denen hervorgeht, dass das PT Freeport
Management während dem Streik mit Einschüchterung und Gewaltandrohungen
gegen das Gesetz verstoßen hat. Es wurde sogar am 11.9. ein Mordversuch
gegen den Vorsitzenden der Gewerkschaften bei PT Freeport, Hr. Sudiro,
verübt. Das war ein Versuch, den Streik zu verhindern.
Sie zwingen Arbeiter zurück nach Tembagapura an die Arbeit, dazu
durchsuchen sie Häuser auf der Suche nach Arbeitern und zwingen sie dann
zu unterschreiben, dass sie wieder zurück an die Arbeit gehen werden.
Die Studenten, die Praktika machen, werden gezwungen, in die Produktion
zu gehen und schwere Maschinen zu bedienen. PT Freeport hat die
Streikenden auch ersetzt durch Leiharbeiter von Leiharbeitsfirmen, die
zum Teil jetzt schon bei PT Freeport arbeiten oder sogar von außerhalb
Papua. Sie müssen 12 Stunden arbeiten, um den Verlust durch den Streik
wieder auszugleichen.

Die Forderungen der GSBI:
1. Volle Unterstützung des Kampfs der PT Freeport Arbeiter.
2. Verurteilung der Einschüchterungsversuche und der Androhung von Kündigungen der Streikenden.
3. PT Freeport soll sofort wieder mit den Arbeitern verhandeln, ihren
Forderungen nach Lohnerhöhung und besseren Arbeitsbedingungen soll
nachgekommen werden.
4. Die indonesische Regierung soll dafür sorgen, dass PT Freeport den streikenden Arbeitern weiterhin Lohn zahlt.
5. Die indonesische Regierung soll den Vertrag mit PT Freeport
überprüfen, er hat keine Vorteile für das indonesische Volk, sondern
zerstört die Umwelt und nimmt den Eingeborenenvölkern und den Arbeitern
ihre Rechte.

Statement
Central Executive Board

Gabungan Serikat Buruh Independent (GSBI)
Federation of  Independent Trade Unions
No: 024-Per.Sikap/DPP.GSBI/JKT/X/2011

Supports Fully  Workers Struggle of PT Freeport Indonesia to demand that
their rights have been grabbed by PT. Freeport Indonesia

Condemn and harshly criticized the attitude and actions  PT Freeport
Indonesia, which perform various forms of pressure, intimidation, terror
and the threat of layoffs Against The Workers of PT Freeport Indonesia,
who is running and join in  strike.

The Administration of SBY-Budiono Must be responsible to Resolving Cases That Happen at PT. Freeport Indonesia

Solidarity greetings,
As reported in various media as well as the chronology of cases that
submitted to the Central Executive Board of  Federation of Independent
Trade Union (DPP.GSBI)  on Thursday, 29 September 2011 ago, that there
has been a workers strike of  PT Freeport Indonesia, since September 15,
2011 till now.   The strike is caused by Arrogant attitudes and
arbitrary actions committed by the PT. Freeport Indonesia against the
workers. Greed, arbitrariness and injustice as well as anti-democratic
attitude, played by PT Freeport Indonesia  toward more less 12,000
Mining workers of PT. Freeport Indonesia,  has spawned the resistance of
the workers in the form of strikes is so powerful, but yet again the
government is only silence and the absence of serious efforts to resolve
the issues . The attitudes of Silence that  played by the Government,
–especially the central government– showed lack of courage in front of
PT. Freeport Indonesia.

PT Freeport is the world’s largest mining company, which is an affiliate
of Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc.  Mining companies operating
in the highlands in Mimika District, Papua Province, is a Mining company
owned by the U.S. imperialists in the areas of the world’s largest
copper, the world’s major producer of molybdenum (metal used in
high-strength alloy steel, chemical products, and production of
lubricants) as well as gold and silver producer in the world. Mining
company in operation since the signed of the First contract  illegally
on April 7,  1967 has robbed the wealth  natural resources of Indonesia
and bring  benefits abound for the U.S. imperialists.

Since operation in Indonesia, PT. Freeport Indonesia has spawned a wide
range of problems . Besides bringing the destruction of nature and
ecosystems are very severe, PT. Freeport Indonesia also has given rise
to misery and squalor for the people of Papua in particular and people
of Indonesia in general.  Since operation in during the Soeharto regime
until now,  the present cases that occur are not countless, because
there is no indeed of good faith to fulfil the demands of the people of
Papua, especially about problems of Freeport.  The demands of  peoples
of Papua that urged and demanding settlement of disputes with PT.
Freeport Indonesia, is always answered with the gun, provoke of
conflict,  that had spawned inter-tribal war,  the mobilization of
military force in the area of mining of PT. Freeport Indonesia, has
given rise to acts of violence against the people of Papua who demand
justice, even the influx of state tactical funds are only used for asset
security company of  PT. Freeport Indonesia than to give the space its
own sovereignty to the people of Papua.

In view of GSBI that the demands of wage increases for workers and deny
the existence of wage discrimination among workers as well as improving
working conditions in negotiation matter of Collective Bargaining
Agreement  is a normative demands are legitimate and justified by
legislation, GSBI also believe that a strike by the workers of PT
Freeport Indonesia which starting from September 15, 2011 was a
legitimate strike by national or international law because it is done in
accordance with the procedure. However, because of the cunning of PT
Freeport Indonesia alone that led as if the strike done by the workers
of PT Freeport Indonesia is not legally valid.

GSBI have already obtained a valid information and reliable, that there
have been happen  violations committed by the company PT Freeport
Indonesia during the strike lasts, the company of PT Freeport Indonesia
has committed acts that violate the law, with various forms of
intimidation, terror and threats of beatings had been done by the
management of PT Freeport Indonesia. Even on September 11, 2011 at 22:00
before the strike carried out, there any assassination attempt against
Mr. Sudiro as chairman of Trade Unions  of PT Freeport Indonesia. This
action  is clearly an attempt made by PT. Freeport Indonesia to thwart
the plan of strikes a far-away days have been prepared and notified to
the government agency responsible for manpower affairs.

Evidences of violation done by PT Freeport Indonesia include the
following: that on 17 September 2011 Management of PT Freeport Indonesia
has forced teh committee of strike  to leave the airport, whereas
placed the Committee team is  there to keeping the Company’s facilities
as part of implementation of the Act and in order the workers who on
duty for  the Public Interest continued to work as usual (no strike).

Forcing Employees, Staff of Contractor back to Tembagapura to return to
work by using Helycopter, make sweeping into the barracks from
room-to-room to look for workers who stay at their room & forced
workers to sign a Statement of  Return of to work and does not support
and joined in the Strike of Peaceful and Orderly . If the workers  do
not want a signing of the statement then the workers were ordered to
leave the Tembagapura. Coercing the internship workers to do the job
Production, both carrying vehicle or operate heavy equipment in the
factory (and Concentrating Mill and Ore-Flow) are the student from the
Apprentice NMI.

The Other evidence is on September 18, 2011 PT Freeport Indonesia has
replaced workers who are on strike with a way to bring workers from
outside of Papua massively.  Labor Contractor (either already working on
the project  of PT.Freeport Indonesia and or from outside of Papua)
forced to work  more 12 hours to  pursuit of the lost production during
the Strike.  Coercing to every workers on the bus to signed the
Statement of Willing to Work and Refusing the strike that conducted at
Post of  Mile 66,   Tembagapura when the worker who rose to Tembagapura.
As well as forcibly expel the Official of Trade Union who intends to
provide explanations about the labour Lawa, especially regulation of
Strike to the workers at Terminal Gorong-gorong , other than that of PT.
Freeport Indonesia also unwilling to pay wage to the for workers who
strike and threaten of layoffs to the workers who do strike.

These incident has proved to all of us that the company owned U.S.
imperialists company (PT Freeport Indonesia) which has a huge advantage
and abundant of the results of exploration in Indonesia has done the
barbarous acts and extremely cruel to workers who have worked hard and
risked their lives for the sake of continuity production of PT Freeport
Indonesia.

Based on the above description then we hereby Central Executive Board of
the  Federation of Independent Trade Union (DPP-GDBI)  is a union which
organize the workers from various sector industry  convey statement as
follows :

1.Support fully the struggle of workers of PT Freeport Indonesia to
demand the rights that have grabbed by  the company PT Freeport
Indonesia.
2.Condemns and strongly condemns the attitude and actions of PT Freeport
Indonesia, which has proven to perform various forms of intimidation,
terror and the threat of layoffs to workers of PT Freeport Indonesia,
who joined in the Strike.
3.Urge PT. Freeport Indonesia to immediately renegotiations with workers
and trade unions and urge PT. Freeport Indonesia to immediately stop
the acts of intimidation; imposing sanctions of any kind to the workers
who used their right to strike and immediately to  fulfil all the
demands of the workers especially in the demands of wage increases;
improvement of working conditions in area of  the mining of PT. Freeport
Indonesia.
4.Urge the Government of Indonesia to ensure that PT. Freeport Indonesia
will pays wage and other entitlements to the workers during the strike.
5.Urge the Government of Indonesia to evaluate and review the contract
with PT. Freeport Indonesia which clearly has no benefits for the people
of Indonesia, it only brings damage to nature and ecosystems, depriving
the rights of  indigenous people of Papua and depriving workers‘
rights.
GSBI also call to all of workers, Unions  and people of Indonesia to
continue build unity and solidarity, as well as support the struggle of
the workers of PT Freeport Indonesia in demanding their rights that have
been grabbing by the company of  PT Freeport Indonesia.

Thus the Statement  of GSBI as a form our support  to struggle of the workers of PT. Freeport Indonesia.
