Another issue the union has raised with the school is the non-renewal of one of the union members.
The case was taken to mediation at the Hyogo Prefectural Labour Commission.
While the school accepted mediation, it withdrew after a proposal was made to have further informal negotiations with the union and then resume mediation at the Labour Commission afterwards.
They were reluctant to enter into even informal negotiations with the union.
The General Union is determined to pursue this matter further both to get justice for our members and to ensure that the school recognizes their rights to union representation.
