TRIBUNBATAM.id, BATAM - The Batam Manpower Department (Disnaker) listed one company that submitted a delay in implementing the City Minimum Wage (Upah Minimum Kota (UMK)) to the Manpower Department in early 2020.
This was conveyed by the Head of Batam Manpower Department, Rudi Sakyakirti.

This increase refers to the calculation of the minimum wage stipulated in Government Regulation number 78 of 2015 concerning Wages.
"This January should've started. But because they haven't been able to implement it, so they asked to postpone it first," he said.
There are a number of things that must be completed in order for the request to be approved. Among these are willing to undergo an audit by the relevant department.
Rudi said, currently there are more than 7,100 companies in Batam. Engaged in various fields, ranging from the electronics industry, oil and gas, shipyards, services, hospitality, and others.
According to him, large companies can still pay wages according to the UMK set by the Governor of Riau Islands yesterday. No big company has proposed a delay until now.
"Hopefully in the future, the condition of the industry in Batam is getting better so that there are no problems related to labor," he said. (*)
