190 People Gather at Union-Busting Symposium – Workers Express Anger

When workers courageously raise their voices to improve their low-pay, long-hour labor conditions and demand that companies guarantee workers' rights, they face retaliation from companies. Such cases have been on the increase. On July 5, 190 people listened to victims' angry disclosure at the symposium held at Surugadai Memorial Hall at Chuo University in Tokyo's Ochanomizu. The symposium was called, "We only get retaliation from companies for raising our voices -- non-regular workers & union's symposium on 7.5." Shukan Kinyobi, weekly magazine, co-sponsered the event.
