    system in clause 3, are positive points for the labor union.
    1.2. ARTICLE 9: DISPENSATION FOR TRADE UNIONS (1) In order to fulfill organizational duties or
    government agency duties related to labor activities, the Company grants dispensation to
    leave work for officials or members of the Trade Union who are mandated. (2) Dispensation

    1.2. Article 19:2 Conversion of Fixed-Term Workers into Indefinite Workers based on subjective
    performance assessment and company needs.
    Comment: Fixed-term contract workers should automatically be converted into indefinite
    contract workers after a maximum of 5 years of service according to Government Regulation
    no. 35 of 2021.
    Best Practice:
    2.1. Article 31:4 Allowances/Contributions Death benefits and wedding contributions are
    provided by the Company as a gesture of kindness to Workers and their families, given to
    Workers who have been employed for more than 1 (one) year. Death benefits are provided
    to the Worker’s family, namely: legitimate spouse (only for one person), birth parents
    (Father/Mother), and biological children. Wedding contributions are provided to Workers

    length of service. (3) This length of service allowance will be stated on the payslip.
    Comment: Length of service allowance is not regulated by law.
    Bad Practice:
    2.3. Article 30:3 It is the general policy of the Company that every review of wages for
    Workers does not automatically always mean an increase in wages. The results of job
    performance assessments by Workers are a factor that can determine whether a Worker
    receives a wage increase, in addition to factors such as circumstances and the Company’s
    financial capability.
    Comment: This clause has the potential for unilateral and subjective assessment. The
    preceding clauses 30:1 and 30:2 have already regulated the wage scale structure, which
    should already be the basic reference, clause 3 poses a threat to nullify the implementation
    of clauses 1 and 2.
    Best Practice:

    days of menstruation, by notifying/requesting permission in advance and attaching a
    doctor’s note.

    female workers to access menstrual leave.

    1.2. ARTICLE 38: RECREATION/ENTERTAINMENT (1) The Company will organize and hold
    tours/recreation every 2 (two) years (if the company’s financial condition is healthy). (2) In
    the implementation of tours/recreation, workers are allowed to bring 1 (one) school-aged
    child. 3) Workers who can participate in tours/recreation must have been employed for at
    least 1 (one) year.

    term employment agreement (as regulated in Government Regulation Number 35 of 2021).
    Comment: This clause potentially terminates the employment relationship according to the
    PKWT contract, which is not renewed without clear reasons (considered the end of the
    employment contract)
    During the probationary period, the Company has the right to terminate the employment
    relationship at any time if the Worker is deemed not to meet the requirements, without
