General Union Sues Okayama City Board of Education

After many years of service as elementary school ALTs, two union members were notified by Okayama City Board of Education that their contracts would be terminated as of March 31, 2011.

 The union immediately requested negotiations with the Board of Education but they have repeatedly refused to meet. This has left the union with no other option but to lodge an unfair labor practice case at the Osaka Labor Commission. The first hearing was held on February 28 with the second hearing scheduled for March 30.
