  • TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Indonesian Worker Union Confederation (KSPI) president Said Iqbal on Monday assured that union members will hold a protest in front of the Constitutional Court (MK) against the Job Creation Law (UU Cipta Kerja).

    “We, the working class, are adamant to reject the Job Creation Law and urges for the Constitutional COurt Judges to deliberate the fairest verdict, especially in the law that oversees workers cluster which harms every worker in Indonesia,” Said Iqbal asserted in the virtual live stream on KSPI Facebook page today.

    Today marks the fourth court hearing in the judicial review lawsuit against the Job Creation Law which will hear the argument and viewpoint from the House of Representatives (DPR) and the government upon passing the Law that caused public uproar at the time it was first introduced. 

    Those who are negatively affected by the law, Said Iqbal argues, are not just workers but also the future generations that will eventually enter the work market that will not receive state protection and cites the lifetime work contract system that leaves workers without job security and social security.
