Our Demands to Interac
Are you an ALT working for Interac? If so, please contact us today. For more information on Interac problems and solutions, please check the Tozen ALTs page.

* Full-time, permanent employment *

We believe that teachers need job security. A full-time, permanent position offers such security — no one wants to worry each April about losing their job. We demand full-time employment for all teachers who want it and permanent employment for everyone.

* Shakai Hoken *

Shakai Hoken is Japan’s health and pension scheme for employees. The employer pays at least half the premium. A teacher with Shakai Hoken ends up with better health insurance and pension than they would in the individual Kokumin Kenko Hoken and Kokumin Nenkin systems. Shakai Hoken is a necessity for those living and working in Japan.

* 20% raise and 600,000 yen annual bonus *

Many Interac teachers need to work multiple jobs. Interac should pay enough to ensure teachers can live comfortably in Japan.

* Time card *

Interac teachers often work more than their contracted hours and are pressured to underreport their hours. A time card would ensure that teachers are paid for their actual working hours.

* Prior Consultation *

Interac has a history of unfair discipline, sudden transfers, and arbitrary non-renewals. Time to put a stop to it. We demand management notify and receive agreement from the union before transferring, disciplining, or terminating any union member.

From August 29th, 2013
From our Labor-Management Agreement:

Tozen Union recently settled with Interac and Maxceed. In the settlement agreement, they confirmed Tozen Union members and Tozen ALTs members will not be subjected to unfair treatment due to union activity.
