Panasonic Dispute ~ 'We will not allow review of high court's decision' Human Chain Action at Supreme Court

Tsutomu Yoshioka, who reported fake outsourcing at Matsushita (Panasonic) Plasma Display Co. and filed a complaint on unfair dismissal on April 25, 2008, won the lawsuit at Osaka high court, which ordered the company to re-instate Yoshioka. The ruling encouraged many temporary workers and workers of unstable employment who fell victim to companies' illegal conducts. As the ruling was handed to the Supreme Court and pleas are planned on Nov. 27, concerns spread that the court would review the high court's ruling. Amid such an important period, the supporters surrounded the Supreme Court by creating a human chain on Oct. 23. Yoshioka, center (photo), led about 200 unionists from Nakama Union, Kokuro Joint Struggle Congress, Zentoitsu Union, Showa Shell Union and other unions to hold hands in demand for fair judgment.
