Progress Made - ECC Strikes Postponed

Negotiations with ECC over an across-the-board pay increase are progressing, so the General Union ECC branch has postponed a planned second strike.

After a successful April 23 strike, the company agreed to double its original offer, and continue negotiating.

We still haven't reached the demanded amount of 100 yen per hour across-the-board; however, the branch is ready to continue fighting for it, and will strike again if negotiations stall.

The next collective bargaining session will be held on Monday, May 23.
