Non-regular kiosk workers on strike! – Rally in front of Tokyo Metro

“We non-regular workers are not subjected to sympathy or relief, but can win our rights by ourselves”. This is a belief of non-regular workers of Tokyo Metro who went on strike on May Day. They also filed a lawsuit against their employer, Tokyo Metro’s subsidiary for violating Article 20 of the Labor Contract Act. On this day, 280 supporters of the striking workers held a protest meeting in front of the headquarters of Tokyo Metro in the Ueno district, central Tokyo. Five members of the Metro Commerce local of the National Union of General Workers Tokyo Tobu expressed their determination to win the lawsuit. (MATSUMOTO Chie)
