Shakai Hoken @ Altia Central

In a bid to save costs, Altia Central have been known to arbitrarily change teachers' contracts and remove them from Shakai Hoken (health & pension). The union has won continued enrollment in shakai hoken for a group of ALTs who were dis-enrolled when they renewed their contracts in April, 2011. The union applied for collective bargaining and Altia quickly agreed to the continued enrollment of our members.

 Health insurance is a right in Japan. Contact the union if your employer tries to dis-enroll you.
