The 2015-2017 Collective Employment Agreement is the 7th Collective Employment Agreement of Total E&P Indonesie.

Hardy Pramono in his address said that amid the uncertainty of the world economic situation, Total E&P Indonesie continues to maintain a conducive work environment and manage the human resources professionally. “We will prioritize a transparency and dialog culture between the management and workers,” he said.

For Total E&P Indonesie, the Collective Employment Agreement (PKB) is not just a document that should be negotiated normatively every 2 years, but it is a real existence of a harmonious industrial relation between the company and workers, as it contains commitment and togetherness values to achieve productivity.

The 2015-2017 Collective Employment Agreement (PKB) was compiled in just 8 (eight) days. The relatively short duration in the negotiation was achieved because the members of the negotiation teams prioritized the transparency and togetherness principles.

Several important achievements in the 2015-2017 Collective Employment Agreement (PKB), among others: there will be increased attention by the company on work life balance thru addition of annual leave over the normative stipulation of the manpower law. This Collective Employment Agreement (PKB) also regulates more clearly the rights of the employees in connection with the forthcoming expiration of the Mahakam Block on 31 December 2017, then safety aspects, enforcement of organizational rights, and common commitment to support professional business ethics and avoid conflict of interest.
