Labours Rights in RSPO: Way Forward?

Around 2011 and 2012, Titus Money (32 years old) from
the great tribe of Yerisiam Gua and Wateburuh tribe who
worked as Public Relations supervising security in PT
Nabire Baru, a subsidiary of Goodhope Holding Company,
demanded unpaid wages for 4 months. When demanding
the wage, the company was always stalling time to pay the
wage in the next month. It then triggered Titus’s emotion
to demand the wage that is his rights and which had not
been paid for about 4 months. Instead of receiving the
wage, Titus experienced physical violence and persecution.
He was beaten and attacked by 8 members of PAM Brimob
from Biak with rattan, guns, causing injuries around
his face and hearing impairment to date. Then, his hands
were tied and he was brought in front of the staff housing of
PT Nabire Baru at kilometre 16 of Wami Nabire. Apology is
never conveyed directly and the wage has not been paid
until today.
Now, the case of PT Nabire Baru has entered the Roundtable
on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) complaint but it is not for
labour but because of its relation to high carbon value (HCV).
Based on the community report (letter attached) and our
findings in the field, the company PT Nabire Baru has violated
the RSPO principles and criteria for sustainable palm oil production,
and it has violated the regulations as well as customary
laws of the Yerisiam Gua Tribe community, the owner of local
customary rights.
