Workers’ voice in negotiations: The lack of a freely and fairly elected workers’ rep could cost employees dearly in the long run, allowing management to alter work rules and worsen conditions with little resistance. | BLOOMBERG Last week Mr. A came to me for a labor consultation. “I have worked for Company A for nearly three years,” he said, “and recently I received an email from human resources announcing an election for workers’ rep (jūgyōin daihyō).

The union started collective [...]

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.
