General Union of Young Workers in Tokyo Wins Lawsuit against Sukiya

Tokyo District Court ordered Zensho Co, a gyudon chain, to respond faithfully to collective bargaining sessions with General Union of Young Workers in Tokyo (Shutoken Seinen Union). The company took the central labor commission in 2007 to court in demand for dismissing its ruling. Zensho’s defeat officially recognizes its illegal act to refuse collective bargaining sessions for the third time. Unlawful act by Japan’s number one restaurant operator should not be allowed. Zensho should immediately respond to the collective bargaining with the union. It is not easy for part-timers and casual workers to join a union for their rights, but the unionists will not give up. We are determined to continue the struggle until our rights are respected. We call on other casual workers and supporters never give up even if forced to work in a terrible working conditions and to stand up together. (By General Union of Young Workers)
