Raise Your Voices, both High-school and College Students!~Student Union Tokyo has been formed~

On September 6, Student Union Tokyo was established mainly by undergraduates and graduates who are members of the General Union of Young Workers Tokyo. The union has been consulted by many part-time working students in high schools, colleges, graduate schools and vocational schools on various matters.
“I got this part-time job from job ads, but my hourly wage is 100 yen less than the advertised one. It’s because I am a high-school kid.” “They wouldn’t let me adjust my shift even during the exam.” “I had to meet a tough and unreasonable quota even though I’m a part-timer.” The union is now within the reach of people with concerns mentioned above. Besides consulting young workers, the General Union of Young Workers Tokyo has given lectures on labor law at high schools, colleges and others and visited a total of 56 schools (of which 29 are high schools) since 2008.
