We successfully reinstated our comrade〜NUGW Tokyo Tobu Tama Milk Branch struggle

Members of Tama Milk Branch of National Union of General Workers Tokyo Tobu on Sept. 25 won the reinstatement of their member who was unfairly dismissed. The collective bargaining session was held for the first time since the dismissal on Sept. 13 at the office of NUGW Tokyo Tobu, where 13 members attended along with the NUGW Tokyo Tobu secretary general.
“I’ve worked earnestly at Tama Milk for more than 20 years,” the union member who was unfairly dismissed said. “I could not be persuaded into leaving work as a dismissal is equally serious as a death sentence.” To this response, other members started shouting, “Immediately reinstate Suzuki (the dismissed member)!” The solidarity of the union members was so strong that the company promised to re-consider its decision.
