Beyond the corporate framework – Katsushika Ward Trade Union Council formed

On March 2, 2013, a new trade union confederation was formed in Katsushika Ward, Tokyo, in which the National Union of General Workers Tokyo Tobu is based. On that day, the trade union council held its inaugural meeting (photo). It consists of the Katsushika Local of the Tokyo Sanitation Workers’ Union, the Sanitation Workers’ Union of Jichiro (All Japan Prefectural and Municipal Workers' Union), Tokyo Tobu, Kokuro (National Railway Workers’ Union), the Telecommunications Industry Labor Union, and the NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone) Trade Union Council. All the affiliated unions were determined to be in solidarity locally to protect the interests of working people. (SUDA Mitsuteru, Tokyo Tobu)
