Jakarta International Container Terminal used to be a state-owned enterprise, but the privatization of the company through the process of acquisition by global capital in international logistic and supply management - Hutchison Port Holdings/Hutchinson Whampoa Limited - has resulted in the workers’ suffering, rather than bringing any benefit to them by this ‘brownfield’ investment. The capital controls 75 percent of the container market in Jakarta’s TanjungPriokPortthrough its cross-shareholding.

Arief  also said the reason Union is rejected  The extension concessions JICT management on Huntchinson Port Holding (HPH) because its  doesn’t take into account the impact on workers. There could be job losses,The union  of JICT has been ignored when it has attempted over the past year to discuss concerns and seek a transparent process.,There has been no open tender for the concession and the process has been rushed even though the existing JICT contract only expires in 2019 and The concession extension doesn’t make financial sense and isn’t in the national economic interest.
