Victim’s mother makes 15-minute speech at collective bargaining on sexual assault at Toyoko Inn

“Why can you not think of the consequences of a woman working on the night shift and for 25 consecutive hours,” a mother of a sexually assaulted victim said at a collective bargaining session with Toyoko Inn and National Union of General Workers, Tokyo Tobu, on Dec. 5 in Tokyo. Her daughter joined the union after she was sexually assaulted by a hotel guest. “My daughter just started working before she fell victim to this assault,” the mother said in tears. “I feel like my daughter’s life was destroyed. Having only one worker at night also puts hotel guests in danger.” (By Suda, NUGW, Tokyo Tobu) See union blog. Photo: Victim, mother at a press conference at Labor Ministry.

母親 15分にわたって大演説~東横インの性的暴行事件で初の団体交渉
「東横イン」(本社・東京都大田区)の女性フロント従業員が宿泊客から性的暴行を受けた事件について、女性が事件後に加入した全国一般東京東部労組と会社との初めての団体交渉が12月5日、都内の弁護士事務所で開かれた。被害女性と母親が上京し東部労組スタッフとともに団交に出席。母親は涙を流しながら15分間にわたり大演説、「25時間勤務で休憩も仮眠も取れず、深夜も女性1人で働かすという危険をなぜ想定しないのか。スタッフが危険ということは客にとっても安全ではない。娘は社会人として働き始めた矢先の事件。母親にとって娘の一生をズタズタにされた思いだ」と訴えた。(東部労組・須田) ・当該ブログ
