COMMITTEE IV DPD RI MEDIATES PROBLEM ON PENSION FUND OF PT. SEMENT KUPANG
Jakarta, dpd.go.id – Committee IV DPD RI held a meeting with the Finance Minister Of the Republic of Indonesia, Deputy Minister of Strategic Industries and Manufacturing Enterprises Ministry of Enterprise Affairs, Chairman of Commission C DPRD NTT Province, Kupang Branch Head Office of Social Security (Jamsostek) and Chairman of PT. Semen Kupang Workers’ Union (Persero), with the agenda of former pension fund PT. Semen Kupang (Persero), Monday (21/05/2012). The meeting was a continuation of the prior hearing (RDP) on March 12th 2012 with the similar subject.
According to the Deputy for Strategic Industrial Business and Manufacture Ministry of State Owned Enterprise (BUMN), Dwijanti Tjahjaningsih, PT. Sarana Agra Gemilang as the executor of Operational Cooperation (KSO) has currently started to operate effectively and has set the fund for the installment in June until the end of year 2012. “We are still waiting for the implementation of the RUPS (Annual General Meeting of Shareholders) for the pension payments settlement of former employees who have been laid off. Eventhough, the compan is stiil in a very difficult condition,” said Dwijanti.
In his explanation, the Minister of Finance Agus Martowardojo, said from the very beginning PT. Semen Kupang (Persero) is difficult to develop or restored, and no wonder if in 2008 the company was closed due to bankruptcy. Regarding the fate of former employees of PT Semen Kupang, Agus said the solution must follow the rules of corporate discipline. This is because the PT. Semen Kupang (Persero) as a state-owned Enterprise has been separated from the state. “The use of the state budget to the pension problems of former employees of PT. Semen Kupang would be a bad precedent, for that we must continue to follow the rules, “said Agus. Nevertheless the Ministry of Finance has the commitment to support the settlement of pension payments according to the RUPS result.
As a form of the DPD’s partiality against the problem in the region, the Committee IV DPD RI in its conclusion recommended that the KSO’s profit sharing is prioritized for the compliance of PT. PT Semen Kupang former employee pension fund and appealed PT. Semen Kupang to settle payment obligations of Social Security (Jamsostek) toward former employees of PT. Semen Kupang based on the appropriate regulations. (Saf)
