Termination of Garuda Indonesia Contract with 700 Employees – Maybe you have read a similar or similar article, but this article is different because we have taken it from a reliable source, following the termination of contact between Garuda Indonesia and 700 employees.
Garuda Indonesia officially ended its contract employees with 700 company employees early.
The policy took effect from November 1, 2020. Since May 2020, 700 of these contract workers have undergone an unpaid leave policy due to the decline in demand for flight services during the pandemic.
“By completing the contract earlier, Garuda Indonesia ensures that it will fulfill all the rights of affected employees in accordance with applicable regulations, including prepayment of the company’s obligations for the remaining employee contract period,” said Garuda Indonesia President Director Irfaniaputra in a statement received by Liputan6. .com, Tuesday (27/10/2020).
Irfan said that this policy was a difficult decision that the company had to make after making various rescue efforts to ensure the sustainability of the company amid the challenges of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
He continued, since the beginning, the interests of employees have always been the top priority that the company has always put forward. When other airlines began implementing employee reduction policies, Garuda Indonesia continued to strive to optimize strategic steps to ensure improved company performance for the benefit of employees and the company’s future business.
“However, at this point, we have to make tough decisions in the midst of this situation which is still full of uncertainty,” said Irfan.
He also expressed his gratitude to employees affected by this policy for their dedication and contribution to the company to date.
Irfan admitted, this pandemic condition had a long-term impact on the company’s performance, where the company’s condition so far has not shown significant improvement.
“However, we believe that all the steps and improvement efforts that we will continue to do in the future, can support Garuda Indonesia’s performance recovery efforts so that it can survive the crisis during the pandemic and also strengthen the foundation for the company’s sustainability in the future,” he concluded.
