Petitioning Mizuno and 5 others

Do Mizuno & Adidas know how their shoemakers are being treated?

Plenty are bruised. There’s even a woman with broken bones after a police officer picked her up and threw her.

This was the situation of the peaceful protest conducted by 2000 employees of PT Panarub Dwikarya, that produces Mizuno and Adidas shoes, Last July. 90% of their employees are mothers which are breadwinner for their families. 

After they were thrown out using tear-gasses and pushed out by police trucks, involving the police, security and hired thugs, 1300 of us were forcefully “resigned”. Because if they fire us, of course they would have to pay severance.

And the other 700? Accepted back, with 0 year status, dan humiliated inside the factory. Some were spit on, told to run laps, and there is even a wife and husband told to walk around holding a sign “I will never protest again”.

Why? Because we asked for our basic workers rights such as delayed payments of wage, health benefits, leave, and better working conditions. Just to go to the bathroom, or even have a drink is difficult.

Several times we’ve sent letters to the Workforce Department in Tangerang about these violations of rights, but there was never a response.

Mizuno and Adidas have publicly commited to protecting worker’s rights. Though in their agreements, no clear sanctions were mentioned. Its time they turn this commitment into reality by giving sanctions to Panarub Dwikarya in the form of order cuts.

Its time these big brands acknowledge and fight for the fate of their shoemakers.

Yang memar banyak. Bahkan ada ibu-ibu yang patah tulang karena diangkat dan dilempar oleh polisi. 

Beginilah kondisi demonstrasi “damai” yang diikuti oleh 2000an karyawan PT Panarub Dwikarya, supplier sepatu Mizuno dan Adidas, Juli lalu. 90% dari karyawan adalah ibu-ibu, yang menjadi tulang punggung keluarga.  

Setelah kami diusir menggunakan gas air mata dan dorongan mobil komando, oleh polisi, sekuriti, dan preman sewaan, 1300 dari kami “diundurkan diri” secara paksa. Karena kalau “dipecat”, tentunya mereka harus bayar pesangon. 

700 yang lain? diterima kembali, dengan status 0 tahun, dan dipermalukan dalam pabrik. Diludahi, disuruh lari keliling, bahkan ada istri suami yang dipaksa keliling membawa tanda yang berbunyi “Saya tidak akan demo lagi”. 

Mengapa? Karena kami meminta hak-hak dasar kami seperti pembayaran upah yang ditangguhkan, THR, jaminan kesehatan, cuti dan kondisi kerja yang lebih baik. Untuk ke kamar mandi saja atau bahkan minum sangat sulit. 

Beberapa kali Dinas Ketenagakerjaan Tangerang dikirimkan surat atas pelanggaran hak normatif, tapi tidak pernah dapat tanggapan. 

Mizuno dan Adidas telah berkomitmen untuk melindungi hak-hak buruh. Namun dalam kesepakatan, tidak ada sanksi yang jelas kepada pihak supplier. Saatnya mereka menegakkan komitmen mereka dan memberikan sanksi seperti potongan order kepada pihak supplier. 

Saatnya brand-brand besar ini mengetahui dan memperjuangkan nasib para pembuat sepatunya.
