It’s Spring. Spring of Shunto (spring wage offensive). The labour union I’m in is also in the final phase of the negotiation with the company now.

I’m fortunate that the labour union I belong to is a relatively strong, fighting labour union, while having not overly hostile relation with the company.

So I was shocked to watch the documentary about the labour union suppression of the Kannama (labour union of truck-mixer drivers). I thought labour union suppression was something in the past, but it’s clearly not.

The documentary can be watched until 16th April noon.

Over 80 of labour union members were unjustly arrested and detained. They were just doing the collective bargaining and strikes, the standard means for labour unions. Some of them decided to fight for the lawsuits, and actually won, but all these facts were barely broadcasted….

Industrial union like Kannama, is what Miyadai-sensei emphasises is needed, more than the enterprise labor unions. We all the workers should fight together. Oppression cannot be tolerated!
