SBK-KASBI Protests Mayor’s Decision In Surabaya

Hundreds of workers protested outside the mayor’s office in Surabaya last week after the mayor endorsed the 2010 minimum wage figure suggested by the local payment body made up of “17 municipal administration officials, two academics, 12 labor representatives and 12 businessmen.”  The figure recommended by the body was Rp 1.031.500, which appears to be a comprise from Indonesian Employers Association’s recommendation of Rp 1.002.000 and the labor section of the body’s recommendation of Rp 1.067.530.  The labor representatives of the body are from Serikat Pekerja Seluruh Indonesia (SPSI), Serikat Buruh Sejahtera Indonesia (SBSI), and Sarikat Buruh Muslimin Indonesia (Sarbumusi).  The workers protesting outside the mayors office were from Serikat Buruh Kerakyatan Kongres Aliansi Serikat Buruh Indonesia (SBK-KASBI), whose own survey suggested Rp 1.131.804 would be necessary to cover a worker’s basic needs in Suryabaya.
