Are You Working Too Much?


Myth 1 Aeon would have you believe the reason you are feeling overworked is because you are either lazy or have never done an honest day’s work in your life.

What we've won at AEON:

  • Unemployment Insurance for every AEON teacher. AEON was the last of the major eikaiwa chains to enrol their foreign teachers, but after a dismissal case handled by the GU, AEON was forced to obey the law.

  • Health and Pension Insurance (shakai hoken) and a pay rise to cover your costs.

  • Grievance Procedure. After having dealt with a few individual consultations with AEON teachers regarding unpaid wages and dismissals, AEON agreed to follow the same grievance procedure that the GU uses at all the big employers for problems.

What's next for AEON teachers and staff?

AEON teachers and staff have a lot of catching up to do.

AEON does not offer a paid holiday system that is inline with the law. All the big eikaiwas now follow the law and AEON has to fall in line. Here's what you should be getting.
