Skilled labor supply problems make only PT KMK Global factory in Central Java can not directly make productin optimaVice President of PT KMK Global Erry Sunarli said development shoe factories PT KMK Global in Salatiga, Central Java has been completed and is planned to start production in January 2017.

 

Plant infrastructure able to support the production process 300000-500000 pairs of shoes per month in the first stage and could be increased up to 1 million pairs of shoes per month. However, the new plant can produce 30,000 pairs of shoes per month when the initial operation in January. Factory production yet

can be optimized for the new company can get 600-700 workers who have the expertise to support the production process.

 

"It's not a matter of order. Problem orders easy, just we move orders from Tangerang. People who do not exist, "said Erry

 

KMK Global budgeted investment of US $ 50 million-US $ 100 million to build a new plant in Salatiga. The factory in Salatiga could absorb 5,000 workers if it can produce optimal on volume of 500,000 pairs of shoes per month. Foreign investment companies from South Korea and Taiwan had previously been producing shoes for Converse, Nike, and Eagle at several factories in Tangerang.

 

Erry explained in Salatiga plant will serve additional production work can not be done entirely by the factories around Tangerang.

He said the new production will be increased gradually to follow the additional supply of labor. The problems of labor supply in Central Java, he added, is a reasonable condition for the newly developed area as an area of new industries.

 

Erry asked the local government support policies to maintain the stability of KMK Global wage levels. Wage policy which plans to provide employers in labor-intensive industrial sector's ability to manage the investment and production plans with sustainable.

 

He felt the level of the minimum wage in Tangerang which has now reached 3.1 million is sufficient for workers, while the level of the minimum wage in Salatiga Rp1.3 million to boost the competitiveness of companies against competitors from Vietnam. Erry estimating process EXERCISE Priok and education workers to expert takes no sooner than six months. Monthly production volume of 500,000 shoes per month is expected to be achieved before 2017 ends.

 

WORK TRAINING

Earlier, Chairman of the Indonesian Footwear Association Eddy Widjanarko said that the development of labor-intensive industries in the new territories need the full support of government through worker training facilities. Workers ready for use may be an added attraction for potential investors are currently eyeing Indonesia as a transfer destination of China's shoe industry.

 

"The government should know that if we open up the field of new workers, wherever, there should be support for government programs. This is also done in Vietnam and China, "said Eddy. BPS data shows sports shoe exports rose 5.19% from US $ 1.9 billion in January-October 2015 to US $ 1.99 billion in January-October 2016. The export value of footwear sector and footwear rose 8.5% from US $ 4.47 million in 2014 to US $ 4.85 million in 2015. the industrial sector of footwear and leather in 2015 accounted for 5.13% of the total export value of processing industry valued at US $ 4.6 billion.

 

Director of the Textile, Leather and Arts, Ministry of Industry, Muhdori, said sports shoe industries such as PT KMK Global requires a highly skilled workforce for an industry with high precision. "They're sophisticated, requiring high precision production. Its workforce must also come to adjust for the sake of production. So it took the process, "he said.

 

He said the government continues to provide support in the process of developing labor-intensive industries in the region of Central Java through bera- gam manpower training facilities. However, Muhdori said the manufacturer also should be more aggressive in the recruitment process and still provide the training process independently because of the government's ability to provide limited training program.

 

 

 

KMK Global Terkendala Tenaga Kerja

 

 

Permasalahan suplai tenaga kerja terampil membuat pabrik baru PT KMK Global di Jawa Tengah tidak bisa langsung berproduksi optimaVice President PT KMK Global Erry Sunarli mengatakan pembangunan pabrik sepatu PT KMK Global di Salatiga, Jawa Tengah sudah rampung dan direncanakan mulai berproduksi pada Januari 2017.

 

Infrastruktur pabrik mampu mendukung proses produksi 300.000—500.000 pasang sepatu per bulan pada tahap pertama dan masih bisa ditingkatkan hingga 1 juta pasang sepatu per bulan. Namun, pabrik tersebut baru bisa memproduksi sekitar 30.000 pasang sepatu per bulan saat operasi perdana pada Januari. Produksi pabrik belum

bisa optimal karena perusahaan baru bisa mendapatkan 600—700 tenaga kerja yang memiliki keahlian untuk menunjang proses produksi.

 

“Ini bukan masalah order. Soal order gampang, tinggal kami pindahkan order yang dari Tangerang. Orang yang mengerjakan belum ada,” kata Erry

 

KMK Global menganggarkan dana investasi US$50 juta—US$100 juta untuk membangun pabrik baru di Salatiga. Pabrik di Salatiga bisa menyerap 5.000 tenaga kerja jika   bisa berproduksi optimal pada volume 500.000 pasang sepatu per bulan. Perusahaan penanaman modal asing asal Korea Selatan—Taiwan tersebut sebelumnya telah  memproduksi sepatu untuk Converse, Nike, dan Eagle di beberapa pabrik di Tangerang.

 

Erry menjelaskan pabrik di Salatiga akan berfungsi mengerjakan produksi tambahan yang tidak bisa dikerjakan seluruhnya oleh pabrik-pabrik di sekitar Tangerang.

Dia mengatakan produksi baru akan ditingkatkan secara bertahap mengikuti penambahan pasokan tenaga kerja. Permasalahan suplai tenaga kerja di Jawa Tengah, lanjutnya, adalah kondisi yang wajar buat daerah yang baru berkembang sebagai wilayah industri baru.

 

 

Erry meminta pemerintah daerah mendukung kebijakan KMK Global dengan menjaga kestabilan tingkat upah. Kebijakan pengupahan yang berencana memberikan  pengusaha di sektor industri padat karya kemam- puan mengelola investasi dan rencana produksi dengan sustainable.

 

Dia merasa tingkat upah minimum di Tangerang yang saat ini sudah mencapai Rp3,1 juta sudah memadai bagi pekerja, sedangkan tingkat upah minimum di Salatiga yang  sebesar Rp1,3 juta bisa mendorong daya saing perusahaan terhadap pesaing asal Vietnam. Erry memperkirakan proses pela- tihan dan pendidikan pekerja hingga ahli membutuhkan waktu paling cepat enam bulan. Volume produksi bulanan 500.000 sepatu per bulan diperkirakan bisa tercapai sebelum 2017 berakhir.

 

PELATIHAN KERJA

Sebelumnya, Ketua Asosiasi Persepatuan Indonesia Eddy Widjanarko mengatakan pengembangan industri padat karya di wilayah baru perlu dukungan penuh pemerintah melalui fasilitas pelatihan pekerja. Pekerja yang siap pakai bisa menjadi daya tarik tambahan bagi calon investor yang saat ini melirik Indonesia sebagai tujuan perpindahan industri sepatu dari China.

 

“Pemerintah harus tahu kalau kita membuka lapangan pekerja baru, di mana pun, harus ada dukungan program pemerintah. Ini juga dilakukan di Vietnam dan China,” kata Eddy. Data BPS menunjukkan nilai ekspor sepatu olah raga naik 5,19% dari US$1,9 miliar pada Januari—Oktober 2015 menjadi US$1,99 miliar pada Januari—Oktober 2016. Nilai ekspor sektor industri sepatu dan alas kaki naik 8,5% dari US$4,47 juta pada 2014 menjadi US$4,85 juta pada 2015. Sektor industri alas kaki dan kulit pada 2015 menyumbang 5,13% dari total nilai ekspor industri pengolahan senilai US$4,6 miliar.

 

Direktur Industri Tekstil, Kulit, dan Aneka Kementerian Perindustrian, Muhdori, mengatakan industri sepatu olah raga seperti PT KMK Global membutuhkan tenaga kerja yang terampil karena merupakan industri dengan tingkat presisi tinggi. “Mereka sudah canggih, membutuhkan presisi produksi yang tinggi. Tenaga kerjanya juga harus ikut menyesuaikan demi kepentingan produksi. Jadi butuh proses,” katanya.

 

Dia mengatakan pemerintah terus memberikan dukungan dalam proses pengembangan industri padat karya di wilayah Jawa Tengah melalui bera- gam fasilitas pelatihan   tenaga kerja. Namun, Muhdori mengatakan produsen juga harus lebih agresif dalam proses rekruitmen dan tetap memberikan proses pelatihan secara mandiri karena kemampuan pemerintah menyediakan program pelatihan terbatas.
