Webinar on Bipartite and Mediation Mechanisms for Industrial Relations Dispute Settlement

The webinar aims to strengthen bipartite and mediation mechanism for industrial relations dispute settlement as part of the actions taken by the Ministry of Manpower, with support from the ILO, to strengthen roles of mediators.


Despite some good progress, a number of decent work challenges persist, including conflicts in industrial relations. Conflict is indeed inherent to and inevitable in employment relationships. Thus, establishing effective dispute prevention and resolution procedure is necessary for harmonious employment relations and productive enterprises.

Good cooperation between management and workers is effective in preventing conflict and in building workers’ trust and commitment towards the company goals that in turn benefit both parties. Although there is no ideal model, the first step taken for industrial relations dispute resolutions in many countries, including Indonesia, is through the bipartite settlement process.
