Indonesian Employers Association (Apindo) Karawang Regency agreed to raise the minimum wage (UMK) Falkirk at 8.25 percent from the previous MSE. Apindo assess the increase in the value of MSEs have sense of fairness for employers and workers. As is known, UMK Karawang in 2017 became the highest in Indonesia.

 

It was delivered directly Apindo Chairman Karawang, Syamsu Sobar, when contacted on Tuesday, November 1, 2016. "We will comply with what has been set by the government. If the government sets about 8.25 percent of the amount that we were going to run," he said.

 

Syamsu said, MSE is a safety net for companies and workers. With the enactment of UMK rise of 8.25 per cent certain there will be some employers who will ask for the suspension of the application of MSEs in the company. Nevertheless, continued Syamsu, some businessmen undertakes it. "The increase of the very rational, despite the new 2017 UMK 21 November 2016 will be determined later," he said.

 

In relation to the refusal on the part of workers, Syamsu stated, it is legitimate. Moreover, in the determination of UMK this time based on the survey results needs of decent living (KHL), but refers to the rate inflansi and economic growth. According to him, if the increase in MSE is too high, it will have an impact on companies, especially those in the Karawang regency. Therefore, the current MSE has become a safety net for the company. If talking MSEs not only speak of wages in the industrial sector alone. There are other sectors involved such as wages modern shop workers, employees of gas stations, grocery stores, and other sectors.

 

"With the increase of 8.25 percent UMK, not necessarily those sectors capable of running it," said Syamsu. Previously the Department of Manpower and Transmigration (Disnakertras) Falkirk ensure UMK will penetrate the Rp 3.6 million per month. It was known as the Wage Council of the local government agreed to raise the MSE 2017 at 8.25 percent.

 

"UMK of Rp 3.6 million are thought to be the highest MSE values ​​in Indonesia," said Chief Disnakertras Karawang, Ahmad Suroto. According to him, there is not yet another area that could exceed UMK Karawang. Nevertheless, he was concerned the high UMK Suroto Karawang will affect the investment climate in the region of the rice granary. "One side is our UMK highest in Indonesia, on the other hand it will negatively affect the companies that trouble memenauhi MSE."

 

 

According to him, companies that hire employees to feel heavy in accordance UMK, could move to other areas UMK its value is much lower. If that happens, there will be thousands of newly unemployed in the Karawang regency. "Normally be the industry engaged in the textile, clothing and leather (TSK) that will be hit by the increase in MSE," he said.

 

In addition to TSK sector, trade and services sectors will also be affected by the increase in these MSEs. "Due to increased MSE last year alone, the company they still have not recovered financial condition. The increase in new MSE is certainly going to bother them," he said.

 

 

 

Upah Minimum Karawang 2017 Adalah Yang Tertinggi di Indonesia

 

 

Asosiasi Pengusaha Indonesia (Apindo) Kabupaten Karawang menyetujui kenaikan Upah Minimum Kabupaten (UMK) Karawang sebesar 8,25 persen dari UMK sebelumnya. Apindo menilai kenaikan UMK dengan nilai tersebut telah memenuhi rasa keadilan bagi pengusaha maupun buruh. Seperti diketahui, UMK Karawang pada 2017 menjadi yang tertinggi di Indonesia.

 

Hal itu disampaikan langsung Ketua Apindo Karawang, Syamsu Sobar, saat dihubungi, Selasa 1 November 2016. "Kami akan mematuhi apa yang sudah ditetapkan oleh pemerintah. Jika pemerintah menetapkan sekitar 8,25 persen maka jumlah itu yang akan kami jalankan," katanya.

 

Syamsu menyebutkan, UMK merupakan jaringan pengaman bagi perusahaan maupun buruh. Dengan ditetapkannya kenaikan UMK sebesar 8,25 persen dipastikan akan ada beberapa pengusaha yang akan meminta penangguhan pemberlakuan UMK di perusahaannya. Meski demikian, lanjut Syamsu, sebagian pengusaha menyanggupi hal itu. "Kenaikan sebesar itu sangat rasional, kendati UMK 2017 baru akan ditetapkan 21 November 2016 nanti," katanya.

 

Terkait dengan adanya penolakan yang dilakukan oleh sebagian buruh, Syamsu menyatakan, hal itu sah-sah saja. Apalagi dalam penentuan UMK kali ini tidak berpatokan pada hasil survei kebutuhan hidup layak (KHL), namun mengacu kepada laju inflansi dan pertumbuhan ekonomi. Menurut dia, jika kenaikan UMK terlalu tinggi, akan berdampak pada perusahaan, khususnya yang berada di Kabupaten Karawang. Sebab, saat ini UMK telah menjadi jaring pengaman bagi perusahaan. Jika berbicara UMK bukan hanya berbicara upah pada sektor industri semata. Ada sektor-sektor lain yang terlibat seperti upah pekerja toko modern, karyawan SPBU, toko kelontong, dan sektor lainnya.

 

"Dengan kenaikan UMK sebesar 8,25 persen saja, belum tentu sektor-sektor tersebut sanggup menjalankannya," kata Syamsu. Sebelumnya pihak Dinas Tenaga Kerja dan Transmigrasi (Disnakertras) Karawang memastikan UMK bakal menembus angka Rp 3,6 juta per bulan. Hal itu diketahui setelah Dewan Pengupahan dari pemerintah setempat menyetujui kenaikan UMK 2017 sebesar 8,25 persen.

 

"UMK sebesar Rp 3,6 juta diperkirakan merupakan nilai UMK tertinggi di Indonesia," ujar Kepala Disnakertras Karawang, Ahmad Suroto. Menurut dia, belum belum ada daerah lain yang bisa melampaui UMK Karawang. Meski demikian, Suroto mengaku khawatir tingginya UMK Karawang bakal berpengaruh terhadap iklim investasi di daerah lumbung padi tersebut. "Satu sisi memang UMK kita tertinggi di Indonesia, di sisi lain hal itu akan berdampak negatif terhadap perusahaan yang kesulitan memenauhi UMK tersebut."

 

 

Menurut dia, perusahaan yang merasa berat menggaji karyawannya sesuai UMK, bisa hengkang ke daerah lain yang nilai UMK-nya jauh lebih rendah. Jika hal itu terjadi, maka akan terdapat ribuan pengangguran baru di Kabupaten Karawang. "Biasanyanya industri yang bergerak di sektor tekstil, sandang, dan kulit (TSK) yang bakal terpukul dengan kenaikan UMK," katanya.

 

Selain sektor TSK, sektor perdagangan dan jasa juga akan terkena dampak dari kenaikan UMK ini. "Akibat kenaikan UMK tahun lalu saja, perusahaan mereka masih belum pulih kondisi keuangannya. Kenaikan UMK yang baru ini tentunya bakal merepotkan mereka," katanya.
