芝浦工業大学の講師は労働紛争に入った! ~ Shibaura Institute of Technology Teachers on Strike!

2013年に芝浦工業大学(SIT)の講師は全国一般東京ゼネラルユニオン(東ゼン労組)でSIT支部を結成した。講師の労働条件の改善を目指して、大学に対して団体交渉を開いた。しかし、大学は、突然、「来年度から英語カリキュラムを変更する。来年度は改めて応募せよ。」と一方的に告げました。これはつまり、すべての組合に加盟している講師がクビになることを意味します。 In 2013 Shibaura Institute of Technology (SIT) teachers formed the SIT Local at Zenkoku Ippan Tokyo General Union (Tozen Union). The union started collective [...]

AKB48 members deserve to get workers’ comp for saw attack

AKB48 members deserve to get workers’ comp for saw attack

Survival of the fittest: Mayu Watanabe sits atop the rest of AKB48 after winning the annual 'general election' in Tokyo on Saturday. Management pits individual members against each other to add a competitive edge to the AKB experience, with workers promoted and demoted much like those at a regular company. | AP   On May 25, a man wielding a saw attacked and wounded 19-year-old Rina Kawaei and 18-year-old Anna Iriyama, two members of bumper girl group AKB48, and a male staffer at an event where fans get to shake hands with their AKB idols. Fortunately the injuries were minor, but fans were shocked. The victims and their AKB48 comrades must have been terrified. AKB48 has [...]

Japanese firms have much to lose in battles over bogus outsourcing

Japanese firms have much to lose in battles over bogus outsourcing

Daylight robbery: An employee gets some training in how to deal with armed robbers at a Sukiya branch in Nagoya. Until recently, Sukiya's parent company, Zensho Co., was treating Sukiya employees as contractors, even though they had little choice about shift times and where they worked — conditions that, according to the law, contractors would have control over. | KYODO What is a gyōmu itaku contract? It is basically an outsourcing contract: A company decides it cannot handle a certain job itself, so it outsources the work to another company — or an individual. Individuals on gyōmu itaku contracts are not considered rōdōsha (employees/workers) in the legal sense, and are thus not [...]

Foreign workers fear exploitation as Olympic projects gather steam

Foreign workers fear exploitation as Olympic projects gather steam

Ground zero: Tokyo Olympic Village is scheduled to be built in the capital's Harumi waterfront area. The government wants more foreign workers to be brought into Japan to cover labor shortages in the buildup to the Olympics. | KYODO My first Labor Pains column of the new fiscal year will look at the government’s recent proposal for bringing in foreign workers. Various proposals on easing immigration restrictions for foreign workers have been bandied about in recent years, but they were inevitably scrapped because “Japan is but a tiny island nation.” (In fact, Japan is the fifth-largest island nation in the world, after Australia, Indonesia, Madagascar and Papua New Guinea.)
