Strike Threatens to Disrupt Flights

Bali News: Strike Threatens to Disrupt Flights

(1/20/2005)

The Jakarta Post in its January 14, 2005, edition reports that 13 of Indonesia's main airports may come to a standstill if a threatened strike by airport operators takes place. The labor action, scheduled for Friday, January 21, 2005, will affect the first day of a three-day holiday weekend expected to be crowded with domestic air travellers.

The focus of the dispute is reportedly a plan by the Government to privatize the management of pension funds paid in by the employees of P.T. Angkasa Pura I - the state-owned company charged with managing the 13 airports.

Workers have expressed their concern for the safety of their US$11.1 million pension fund, which if the plan goes ahead will to be taken over by a private insurance firm who, according to the press report, will be paid 30% of the fund's value for management services.

Claiming their pleas for a review of the decision have gone unheeded, the Angkasa Pura workers will launch demonstrations from January 18-20, before formally launching a full strike on January 21.

It is unclear from reports if the strike will continue beyond a single day.

Should the strike go ahead, international and domestic air operations will cease at the 13 affected airports.

The 13 airports that could be crippled by the threatened strike include: Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport; Surbaya's Juanda International Airport; Makassar's Hasanuddin International Airport; Balikpapan's Sepinggan International Airport; Biak's Frans Kaisiepo International Airport; Manado's Sam Ratulangi International Airport; Yogyakarta's Adisucipto International Airport; Surakarta's Adisumarno Airport; Banjarmasin's Samsudin Noor Airport; Semarang's Achmad Yani Airport; Mataram's Selaparang Airport; Ambon's Pattimura Airport; and Kupang's Eltari Airport.
