2018 Municipal Minimum Wage (UMK): Province of Jawa Barat

The Provincial Government of Jawa Barat has issued the 2018 municipal (district/city) minimum wage figures.  The figures are stipulates in the Governor Decree No.561/Kep.1065-Yangbangsos/2017. The 2018 Jawa Barat municipal minimum wage is not far from trade unions criticism objecting to the use of Government Regulation no. 78 of 2015 as reference in minimum wage formulation. They argue that the use of the Government Regulation in question in formulating the municipal minimum wage sharpen the persistent issue of minimum wage disparity among districts/cities in the region, that could not be resolved any time soon.

Angka tersebut ditetapkan dalam Keputusan Gubernur Jawa Barat No. 561/ Kep.1065-Yangbangsos/2017.  Upah minimum kabupaten/kota di Jawa Barat ini tidak jauh dari kritik serikat pekerja yang menentang penggunaan Peraturan Pemerintah No. 78 tahun 2015 sebagai acuan dalam formulasi upah minimum.
