The following is the story of Darkisem Binti Cariman for her cases: 

"If I'm not mistaken, on September 27, 2019 around 16:00 WIB,  Erita Tampubolon (a former laborer of PT. Sungintex (Sioen Indonesia) came to my rented house. She said that she visited by accident because she was visiting her friend's house, but the person who she was looking for  was not at home and then stopped by my house. In a conversation with Erita Tampubolon, she first offered me a job, then offered to help with the disbursement of my old age allowance (BPJS Employment) on the grounds that my child who was sick of the syndrome (a bone growth disorder) could seek treatment back to the doctor.

For this offer, I refused by stating that my case had not yet been completed with PT Sungintex (Sioen Indonesia) and still proceeding in court (PHI –Bandung). However, according to Ms. Erita Tampubolon, it was not a problem even though her case is being processed in court, and she promised to help by confirming to BPJS could or not to disbursement of my old age allowance. Ms. Erita Tampubolon also promised me that she would go to PT. Sungintex (Sioen Indonesia) to ask for money to buy milk for my child who is sick because she said she felt sorry for me and my child,".

Honestly I did not have any thoughts at that time, just glad there was someone who wanted to help amid the economic hardships of the family, especially the need for money to seek treatment for my child.

I didn't think, I would be cheated, manipulated or anything.
On September 29,  I called Ms. Erita Tampubolon asked about the process of disbursement of my old age allowance  that she promised. And according to Ms. Erita Tampubolon based on her confirmation to the BPJS Employement that my old age allowance can be disbursement, but the requirement I should to revoke my lawsuit case in the Industrial Relations Court (PHI) and I was prohibited from communicating and speaking with Ani Nurhayati (Chairperson of  SBGTS-GSBI trade union of PT. Sungintex (Sioen Indonesia) on the reasons if I told to Ani Nurhayati,  Ms. Erita Tampubolon could not help me.

Then the next day, on Monday, September 30, 2019, Ms. Erita Tampubolon came back to my rented house to explain that milk money for her child was amount  3  million IDR  (or 214 USD), and asked me to revoke my lawsuit case in Industrial court,  if I want disbursment my old age allowance

Then Ms. Erita Tampubolon handed me 3 (three) papers to be signed by me, which she said was a file for arranging the disbursement of my old age allowance of BPJS Employment.

She was not give me opportunity to read the contents of the 3 (three) letters, including not gave me a copy of the document.

After that, Tuesday, October 1, 2019, if I'm not mistaken, around 10:00 am., Sister. Erita came again to my rented house, offered me 2 (two) papers asking me and my husband to sign it, she said this document is  an refinement from yesterday's document, so that the milk money for my child could be increased to 5 million IDR.

Without thinking I just signed it, because I thought it could be enough to disburse 5 million for family expenses and my child treatment.

On Thursday, October 3, 2019, I was called by Erita, who said that the bank had transferred some 5 million IDR to my account, but she does not explaining the money from the disbursement of my old age allowance  (BPJS Employment) or others. Upon this information, my husband and I then checked into the bank through an ATM and it was true that there was an entrance fee of 5 million IDR.
What makes me confused, on October 13, I was contacted by Erita again, she said tomorrow on October 14, I should went to Industrial Court, Bandung. And on October 14, 2019 October 2019, I was picked up at my rented house, and I even more surprised by the driver and a car that picked me up,  due the driver and the car  is PT Sungintex owned, and the car  drived to Cikarang to picked up Mrs. Merry Lusinta Sitanggang (HRD Manager of PT. Sungintex (Sioen Indonesia). She said would invited me to the Industrial Relations Court (PHI) Bandung to deliver the document I signed.

When we arrived at Bandung Industrial Relation Court,  I was not allowed to go down, they told me to wait in the car. The one who came down were Mr. Erita and Mrs. Merry, but soon returned and  they said,  they wanted  to give  the document, but the judge was not there.

It seems like the document was not given to the Judge, then I was invited to go around before being invited to lunch at Bale Gazebo.  After lunch we back home to Bekasi and when we arrived in Cikarang Mrs. Merry (HRD Manager of PT. Sungintex) said to me, "later Wednesday comes again with your husband". after that I was taken home to my rented house.

On October 15, Ms. Erita called me to remind me that tomorrow (Wednesday, October 16, 2019) I should went to Bandung Industrial Relation Court with my husband. The next day (Wednesday, October 16) at around 6:00 a.m. I, my husband and son were picked up in front of the clinic, we went to the bale gazebo not to Bandung Industrial Relation Court. Arriving at the Bale Gazebo Mrs. Merry (HRD Manager of PT. Sungintex) said: "we come here to stand by in case we need it" and it turns out we did nothing just sitting around and eating at Bale Gazebo.

At around 2:00 PM, we went home and on the way home Ms. Merry Lusinta Sitanggang (HRD Manager) told us a lot about the case of Ms. Ani Nurhayati as the chairperson of SBGTS-GSBI PT. Sungintex (Sioen Indonesia), which has been running and being handled by GSBI.  Mrs. Merry said that Ani Nurhayati's case only spend a lot of money and was unsuccessful, but I did not respond, I just kept quiet. Just in mind, why should talk about Ani's case

I just realized and understood that I had been cheated and manipulated by the company after meeting with Ani Nurhayati  on October 18. Mrs. Ani Nurhayati was came to my rented house and asked me about the letter that sent to GSBI central office about revoking the power of attorney  from GSBI central board and withdrawing the lawsuit case at Bandung Industrial Relation Court.  I was confused and I said that I had never made a statement to revoke of power of attorney and never sent a letter to the GSBI Central office.

After that Ani Nurhayati explained me and I just really understood. I am very sorry for my lack of understanding of the labor law and regulations, so that I easily believe with sweet words of Erita who said she wanted to help sincerely and there was no intention whatsoever other than wanting to help me, apparently I was cheated and had unknowingly signed several letters a letter that I myself did not know what was in it and did not have a copy, which turned out to be detrimental to myself.
