Presiden IFJ Segera Lobi ILO
Hong Kong, Kompas Inside. Presiden International Federation of Journalist (IFJ) Christopher Warren mengaku ikut prihatin melihat perkembangan kasus pemberangusan serikat pekerja di Harian Kompas.

Untuk itu, Presiden IFJ berjanji akan melobi Organisasi Buruh Sedunia (ILO) untuk menggelar kasus ini.

Demikian keterangan Sekretaris Perkumpulan Karyawan Kompas, Bambang Wisudo, setelah tiba di tanah air, Rabu (14/2/2007) siang ini.

Selama sepekan terakhir, Bambang Wisudo memang menghadiri pertemuan serikat pekerja pers tingkat regional di Hong Kong.

"Ini merupakan contoh terburuk bagi serikat pekerja pers di Indonesia dan serikat pekerja pada umumnya," kata Presiden IFJ ini ke Bambang Wisudo.

"Sebab, Kompas sebagai harian yang liberal saja melakukan tindak anti-union," ujar Christopher Warren yang pernah menghadiri pelantikan kepengurusan baru serikat pekerja Perkumpulan Karyawan Kompas beberapa tahun lalu.

"Maka, tindakan ini tidak bisa kita terima," tegas Christ.

Kalau dibiarkan, kata Christ, pemberangusan model ini akan merembet pada serikat pekerja pers lainnya di Indonesia.

Selain itu, menurut Christopher, IFJ yang beranggota 500.000 jurnalis di seluruh dunia, juga akan membantu perjuangan Bambang Wisudo dengan menghadirkan saksi-saksi ahli perburuhan internasional dalam proses persidangan nanti di Indonesia.

Solidaritas dan keprihatinan serupa juga ditunjukkan oleh pengurus National Union of Journalist (NUJ) Korea Selatan, NUJ Filipina, NUJ Malaysia dan NUJ Taiwan yang hadir dalam forum pertemuan itu.

Bahkan, Hong Kong Journalists Association (HKJA) yang menjadi tuan rumah dalam pertemuan ini berjanji akan memberi bantuan kongkrit. Salah satu caranya, adalah mendemo Kedutaan Besar Indonesia di Hong Kong.

Dalam sejarah perburuhan di Indonesia, baru dua kali ILO menyidangkan dan memutus kemenangan pada buruh Indonesia.

Kasus pertama terjadi pada buruh Hotel Shangri-La tahun 2001. Sedang kasus kedua adalah pemberangusan serikat pekerja yang menimpa Ketua dan Sekretaris Federasi Serikat Pekerja Mandiri Tebu dan Gula di PT. Gunung Madu Plantation (PT GMP), Lampung, bulan Juli 2006.

Sebelumnya, Christopher Warren sendiri telah berkirim surat ke Pemimpin Redaksi Kompas, Suryopratomo. Namun himbauan ini tak diindahkan. Berikut kutipan surat Christopher Warren dua bulan lalu:

December 12, 2006

Suryopratomo
Editor in chief KOMPAS
Jl Gajah Mada 109-110-AJAKARTA 11140
Phone : 021-6329919Fax : 021-2601611

Dear Mr Suryopratomo,

I am writing on behalf of the IFJ, the global organisation representing over 500,000 journalists, to protest against your company’s treatment and sacking of long-term and loyal employee, Bambang Wisudo.

Wisudo was reportedly fired on December 8 after refusing to be reassigned to Ambon, Maluku Province. From information available to the IFJ, it seems that your company was seeking to relocate Wasudo to a distant location in order to prevent his activism as secretary of the KOMPAS Trade Union (PKK).

This is a disgraceful situation, and the IFJ gives its full support to our affiliate, the Aliansi Jurnalis Independen (AJI), in its campaign to see Wisudo immediately reinstated and his rights returned.

The IFJ understands that Wisudo was also forcibly removed from KOMPAS offices by security personnel and detained in a holding cell for several hours until the delivery of a dismissal letter signed by you, as editor-in-chief.

It is a terrible situation when a journalist can give 15 years of loyal service to a newspaper then be dismissed, unlawfully treated, and despised for his efforts to improve important media standards.

The humiliating and improper handling of Wisudo's case severely jeopardises KOMPAS' reputation as a quality media employer, and organisation.

The blatant intimidation tactics used by KOMPAS management to try and force Wisudo to relocate, and your company’s attempts to phase out his influence and union representation, is not only shocking and morally reprehensible, but also is contrary to the International Labour Organisation's (ILO) Right to Organise and Collective Bargaining Convention.

We must emphasise the crucial need for all media employers, including KOMPAS Daily, to allow union members to assemble, communicate and represent the interests of media employees.

In line with Indonesian Labour Law, we support AJI's demands that KOMPAS:
- Reinstate Wisudo to his former position at PT KOMPAS Media Nusantara.
-Recognise Wisudo's role as secretary of the PKK.
-Rescind the decision to send Wisudo to Ambon, Maluku Province and abandon its continued policy of union member relocation.
-Respect the right of employees to form and elect representatives to trade unions without intimidation.

Conduct a thorough, transparent investigation of the events listed herein and take decisive corrective action against its internal security personnel, to ensure that this reprehensible action is not repeated.


Yours sincerely
Christopher Warren
President
International Federation of Journalists
