Morowali Utara – Deputy Minister of Manpower ( Wamenaker ) Afriansyah Noor paid a visit to PT Gunbuster Nickel Industry (GNI) on Thursday (19/1/2023). This is after the deadly clashes that occurred a few days ago.
The Wamenaker also held a closed meeting with the management of PT. GNI accompanied by the local government, the Central Sulawesi Provincial Employment Service, the North Morowali Police, the State Intelligence Agency (BIN) Headquarters and the National Police.
The meeting discussed the riot at PT GNI on 14 January 2023 which killed two PT GNI workers.

However, the Wamenaker said that the management accepted all the inputs and would improve the operations of PT. GNI includes K3.
“We said everything earlier, management (PT GNI) received input from us and will improve everything, including the K3,” he said.
