Unfairly dismissed tour conductor reinstated

SHIOTA Takuji, the president of the Hankyu Travel Support (HTS) Local of the National Union of General Workers Tokyo Tobu, returned to work on September 10, 2013. Shiota struggled for the withdrawal of his dismissal for more than four years, and his reinstatement was confirmed after a victorious settlement of this case at the Tokyo High Court. His first assignment after the reinstatement as a tour conductor was a 10-day tour to Turkey. His reinstatement is very significant in the sense that such a worker in a vulnerable temporary position as him succeeded in returning to work when the Japanese Government attempts to ease restrictions on firing workers. We are confident that a trade union can overcome unfair practices of companies. Your support to our struggle is highly appreciated! (Sugano)
