Berlitz Update (2017/09/15): Progress In Talks

Just recently, we let you know that our Berlitz Branch had taken a strike vote.

The intention was never to strike immediately, but to show the company the seriousness of our intent to protect the incomes of Pay Per Lesson teachers, as some instructors have experienced losses of over 100,000 yen per month.

The union has demanded that steps be taken to protect and guarantee the salaries of instructors.

Recent negotiations have seen some movement on the part of Berlitz management and, while no offer has yet been made, talks have progressed enough for us to give the company assurances that we will not strike before October 6th when the next round of collective bargaining will take place.

For their part, Berlitz has assured us that there will be a firm proposal on the October 6th.

The branch executive committee will be holding a meeting this Sunday night, with all branch members welcome to attend.
