Responding to the fast changing world of work in Indonesia, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the country recently launched a Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP) 2020-2025. Its three priorities are effective social dialogue that promotes sustainable business and workers’ welfare; job creation; and enhancing protection for vulnerable groups of workers.

The programme will take into account national employment priorities and global development targets, including Making Indonesia 4.0, Roadmap of Vocational Development Policy in Indonesia 2017-2025 and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The priorities are in line with the current employment conditions of Indonesia, according to a press release from the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

The DWCP was officially signed by Indonesia’s key labour actors: Ida Fauziyah, minister of manpower; Hariyadi Sukamdani, chair of the Indonesian Employers’ Organisation; Elly Rosita, president of Confederation of All Labour Union (KSBSI); Said Iqbal, president of Indonesian Trade Union Confederation; Andi Gani Nena Wea, president of All Indonesian Workers Union Confederation; Yorrys Raweyai, chair of All Indonesian Workers Union Confederation; H.M Syaiful B. Anshori, president of Indonesia Moslem Labour Confederation (K-SABURMUSI); and Ristadi, president of National Workers’ Confederation (KSPN).

Changing nature of employment (e.g. platform workers), skills mismatch, informalities, insufficient social security coverage and declining bargaining power of workers are some of the key factors that weaken the linkages between economic and job growth, ILO said.

“Taking into account the current employment challenges, including major changes in the nature of employment due to the advancement of technology, globalization, climate change and so forth, the DWCP will guide tripartite actions, with continuous support from the ILO, towards the promotion of decent work and productive employment,” said Michiko Miyamoto, ILO country director for Indonesia.

In addition to the launch, a public dialogue is held to further discuss actions that should be taken by key labour actors to respond and adapt to the massive and fast changing world of work in the country.
