Isuzu Motors Ltd. Should Take Responsibility for Employees! 300 People Protest at Headquarters

 About 300 supporters and workers from Zenzosen (All Japan Shipbuilding and Engineering Union) Isuzu Motors Branch/Shonan Union fiercely protested at Isuzu’s main headquarters in Tokyo's Omori area on Jan. 27. In cold wind, the unionists distributed fliers to employees reporting to the company and Union President Furohashi,through a microphone, accused of management of slashing employees without any second thoughts. After joining the union, 33 members are struggling in solidarity to take their jobs back. On Dec. 26, the company withdrew dismissal of seasonal workers amid escalating labor movement and heightened public criticis. But the automaker has not taken any measures for employment and housing for the temp workers except for extending rental contract of its dormitory. After the protest on this day, they held the 6th collective bargaining with the management in Fujisawa. (See Video on Union Tube)
