Ryan M. (Secretary Treasurer)
I joined the union in fall of 2014 because like many others, I worry about job security. Each year, our working conditions have been incrementally worsening and there has been a severe lack of disclosure and communication between management and employees. No matter your work contract, gender, age or citizenship, I feel the company needs to stop treating us as second-rate workers. I will do the best that I can to fight on your behalf.
I joined the General Union and declared my membership in 2014. Why? Because I feel that the company is treating its teachers unfairly. I hear lots of negative and inhumane comments from colleagues about the abuse they encounter from the company and its students. I believe that if we all work together, we will achieve better working conditions and positive change in a safe and professional manner.
Bruce C. (Executive Officer – Kansai)
I continue to be a General Union member due to the need for protection from a Company that has shown little regard for their employees on any issue, but also to encourage the Company to change toward more thoughtful, positive and productive policies.
