Nike Agrees to Pay Overtime worth Rp9 Billion
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Sports footwear company Nike has agreed to pay overtime compensation for its workers in Indonesia. The company will pay US$1 million for 4,500 workers at PT Nikomas’ plant in Serang, Banten.
The compensation was granted after the workers’ union demanded the company, which has not paid their overtime totaling 593,468 hours, for the past two years. The resolution has been reached after an 11 month-long negotiation process between Nike and the union.
Additionally, Nike will also form a special team to provide training for the workers. “Nike commended their action and we’ll try to improve the company to protect the workers’ rights,” said Nike’s statement letter, quoted by BBC on Thursday.
National Workers’ Union chairman, Bambang Wirahyoso, said this would become a precedent for all factories nationwide. “This can potentially lead to a shocking wave of labor movement in Indonesia,” he said.
