"The chamber did not (file a lawsuit) The chamber is a parent organization. It is (Apindo) that filed it.

Dewi noted that the chamber supports Jakarta Governor's Decision No. 1517 of 2021 on the provincial minimum wages for 2022.
The governor signed the decision on December 16, 2021, that raises the provincial minimum wages for 2022 by 5.1 percent, or Rp225,667.
In fact, Apindo does not need to file the lawsuit against the revised increase in provincial minimum wages.

"In my opinion, the decision of the chief of the Manpower Office is a derivative rule. Do they file a lawsuit against the content of the gubernatorial decision or the regulation (of the head of the manpower office)?" she questioned.
