Survey Says: 1,338 Laborers to Receive Religious Allowance in Installment

12 May 2021 15:27 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Survey conducted by the Religious Allowance Reporting Outpost revealed that as many as 1,338 laborers in Jakarta and Semarang Regency will receive their religion allowance in installments. The institution, Religious Allowance Reporting Outpost, was established by the Jakarta Legal Aid Institution together with YLBHI, PSHK, KPBI, and FSPBI.

In addition to the religious allowance installment, the religious allowance outpost also recorded a number of issues in the channeling of the laborers' rights.

Dian Septi Trisnanti, a representative from the Indonesian Airport Workers Labour union Federation (Federasi Serikat Pekerja Bandara Indonesia - FSPBI), said that the 1,338 laborers who will receive their religious allowance in installment originated from three manufacturing companies and a tourism company. Based on the survey, there is also one laborer who will not receive the religious allowance in full.

According to Dian, the temporary survey result as of April 29, 2021, revealed that 52% out of 123 respondents stated that their religious allowance was not provided in accordance with the regulation of the Manpower Ministry.

"Respondents in the survey originated from 50 companies with 19 business sectors added with housemaids located in 22 regencies/cities in Sumatera, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, and Nusa Tenggara," Dian said in an online press conference on Wednesday, April 12, 2021.

As many as 13.28% of the respondent said that the amount of their religion allowance is in accordance with the govenment's provision, but they will receive it in installment. Another 15.4% mentioned that their religion allowance will be paid in lump-sum but in a lower amount.

Meanwhile, around 3.3% of the respondents said that their religion allowance will be paid in installment in a lower amount. "Some 2.4% of the respondent said their religion allowance is in the form of a parcel, and 17.1% did not receive religion allowance," Dian said.

Such condition contradicts the Ministry of Manpower Circular Letter, which allows employers to pay religion allowance by installment and report their financial performance, however, the amount should not be reduced.

According to Dian, 93.75 percent of the workers experiencing violation on the religion allowance had never provided their allowance to the company to reduce their rights. Meanwhile, some 92.2 percent stated that they had never known their company's financial report.

The reporting outpost also recorded that there are 14 laborers from manufacturing companies in Jakarta who did not receive religious allowance because of being severed.

"As many as 907 manufacturing and transportation laborers, wuch as drivers and porters in Jakarta did not receive any religion allowance and were not being paid." Dian said.
