*Note: This is a Japanese language event

The General Union will be holding monthly Q&A meetings in Japanese for ALL Eikaiwa workers. Are you working as staff? As a teacher? ALL non-members and members are welcome to join and get their labour questions answered. We want to hear from you so we can better support the needs of workers in Eikaiwa schools!

We will cover issues like:

  • Workplace Harassment
  • Unpaid Overtime & Working in Break Times
  • Low Salaries
  • Illegal Company Actions
  • Unstable Working Conditions
  • The Rights of Union Members in the Workplace
  • And ALL Questions from You!

You do not have to be a member to join. All are welcome to join anonymously ( if you like ), ask questions, or just listen. We want to hear from you!

Let’s make English Conversation Schools a Rewarding place to work for all! 

Next Date TBA

Coordinators: Sonomi Terao & Emiko Ogawa

*Note: This is a Japanese language event

The General Union has been fighting issues in the English conversation school industry since the union was formed 30 years ago. We want to make it possible for people in ALL positions at language schools to work comfortably and safely.

To do that, we need to hear your story!

Join us online from the comfort of your home, anonymously if you wish, with drinks and snacks! Ask us any questions about your job, share your problems and complaints, or just listen! We want to hear whats troubling you, and offer our support. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

Next Date TBA
