Meeting of Citizens and Diet Members for Radical Revision of the Temporary Staffing Services Law - Smashing Is the Only Solution for Proposition of th



Concerning the revision of the Temporary Staffing Services Law, the seedbed of the working poor, the Labor Policy Council made a proposition on September 24 to the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. In opposition to the proposition, citizens and some Diet members had a meeting on October 9 in an Upper House conference room. The room was more than full of 150 participants from labor unions and the media. In relay talks, Satoshi Kamata, Takao Saito, Makoto Yuasa and Karin Amamiya emphasized before anything else the need for a move to change the basic framework of the gap-widening society while revealing that the Labor Policy Council's proposition could never remedy the situation in any sense. In this meeting, there was also an appeal from a member of the newborn union of detached cabin attendants for Turkish Airlines concerning the actual state of the disguised contracting practices involved. In concluding remarks, Asami Nakano from the Dispatched Workers' Network said with anger, "Today's talks have made me convinced that the Labor Policy Council's proposition must be smashed, not protested."







 派遣法の抜本改正求め院内集会~労政審建議はフンサイしかない!

 ワーキングプアの温床である労働者派遣法の改正をめぐって、9月24日労働政策審議会(労政審)は厚生労働省に建議を行ったが、これに反対する院内集会が10月9日、参院会議室で開かれた。労組関係者・メディアなど150名が集まり超満員だった。鎌田慧・斎藤貴男・湯浅誠・雨宮処凛の各氏のリレートークでは、労政審建議では何の改善にもならず、何より格差社会の基本的枠組みを変えていく必要性が強調された。また、最近組合をつくったトルコ航空派遣添乗員が偽装派遣の実状を訴えた。まとめの発言で、派遣労働ネットの中野麻美さんは「きょうの話を通して、労政審建議は異議ありどころかフンサイしかないことを確信した」と怒りをこめて語った。
