Decontamination workers win “special allowance” after eight months of struggle

My name is Nakamura, and I used to work in decontamination of Fukushima. I appeared on Labornet TV in March to let people know about the facts about decontamination work. Twenty-five of our friends we shared the same meals got together to form a union. We demanded Kajima Corportaion and three other subsidiaries the special allowance for dangerous works that is supposed to be paid by the Enviornmental Ministry. It took us eight months, but we were able to hold a victory rally on July 28 in Koriyama City, Fukushima Prefecture. Without the support from our sisters and brothers, support organizations, media workers, we would not have been able to win. Thank you so much. (By Nakamura, Denko Sogi)
