United Air should reinstate its workers

The Japanese cabin attendants of the Continental Micronesia Airline, which is a subsidiary of United Airlines, are in a struggle to get reinstated as they were dismissed due to its closure at Narita Airport. It’s been two years since they filed a lawsuit against the company at Tokyo District Court. United Airlines is a company that saw the record profit, but it dismissed only its Japanese cabin crew. The union insists that this unfair dismissal is to evade Japan’s labor law and a union bashing. The union and its supporters staged its 15th protest action at Narita Airport on Jan. 27 and distributed fliers to passengers of United Air. Some passengers showed support to the union struggle. The UA dispute will be going through the labor commission investigation on Feb. 8, and a hearing at Tokyo District Court on March 1 and April 26. (By Labornet)
