Indomaret retail workers start online petition after THR is slashed

first_imgIndomarco Prismatama managing director Wiwiek Yusuf told The Jakarta Post on Friday that the company had paid the holiday bonuses in accordance with government regulations.”I think there has been a misunderstanding. The company paid out the THR bonuses to all of our employees on May 11 as regulated in Law No. 13/2003 on labor and ministerial regulation No. 6/2016 on Idul Fitri holiday bonuses for employees and workers,” Yusuf said via text.”We paid the THR bonuses as we’re committed to our employees, despite the difficult financial situation that we are facing, including a sharp drop in business over the past two months,” he added.Yusuf explained that since the government implemented the PSBB to curb the spread of COVID-19, the company had cut operational hours in its minimarkets.”We have shortened our minimarkets’ operational hours due to the PSBB. I think economic activities in all sectors are decreasing [during this pandemic].“Everybody needs to understand this. The management has asked all employees to stay positive and productive in their jobs,” he said.Topics : Employees of Indomaret, one of the country’s top convenience store chains, have started an online petition demanding the company pay their Idul Fitri holiday bonuses (THR) in full.The workers initiated the petition after the company slashed their annual bonuses after the business was hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.”Employees who have worked for more than five years usually received THR bonuses equivalent to 1.5 to twice their monthly salary. However, now all employees have only received bonuses equivalent to one month’s salary,” the petition said. “The company claims it has experienced losses [because of the pandemic], but representatives told the media that its sales rose between 7 and 10 percent after the government implemented the large-scale social restrictions [PSBB],” it added.”[We] demand that PT Indomarco Prismatama as the operator of Indomaret minimarkets pays our THR bonuses in the regular amount […] to lift our spirits during this difficult time.”As of Friday, some 20,000 people had signed the petition.Read also: COVID-19 forces restaurants, retailers to cut wages, furlough employeeslast_img read more
