‘We dont want that person to go on working here because he is bound to continue with his habits of discrediting indigenous Papuans. We have experienced these things because of some trivial mistakes. Does the company want a repetition of recent actions,’ said one worker who didn’t want his name to be identified, when asked to confirm the action.
The matter was said to be closed after the person concerned was given a second warning. For some of the staff, a very simple thing can result in the worker being sacked without mercy.
It appears that the person involved in this latest case is a superintendent working at the Marine Section of the company named Nurcahyo who committed these human rights violations which are forbidden within the company. When there is clear evidence that someone has committed such things, that person is immediately sacked. Yet in this case, the man in charge of the human rights department, SemiYapsawaki, was simply given a second warning.
There have been many cases like this, according to JUBI, which recently triggered a strike at the company.
‘We want this person to be sent home because this is not the first time that he behaved in such a way. We hope that the management will take action against this person who can cause further major problems in the workforce,’ said this source.
Attempts to contact the management, including the Manager, Juarsa, were not successful as he did not respond on his hand phone.
