Read the joint statement issued by the German NCP and parties concluding the specific instance - 21 May 2014
In May 2013 the German NCP received a request for review from a group of trade unions - including Indocement Union, SP-ITP, the Federation of Indonesian Cement Industry, the Confederation of Indonesian Trade Unions, and IndustriALL Global Union - alleging that PT Indocement Tunggal Prakarsa, an Indonesian company, and HeidelbergCement AG, a German company, had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in Indonesia. The trade unions alleged that Indocument had not accorded the union an appropriate level of respect and by transferring union leaders to other units within the company. Indocement contested the union’s statement but stated that it desired to preserve its previously cooperative relationship with the union.
