Nichibei Vice-president Noriko Kuroda will take the stand both times. On 14 March she will be cross-examined by the General Union for her slander of the union to new staff. She will also be asked how banning all union activities on company premises can possibly be legal, considering this activity is protected by the constitution. A judgement is expected by the end of the year. These hearings are open to the public. Please come and support the union!
