New member Orientations

New member Orientations to the union are offered three times per year. You can in person in our Osaka Office, or by Skype. This program will generally be on a Sunday evening - but, with Skype, we can be flexible.

After you have been formally ratified as a union member you will receive information on upcoming orientation dates.

Just joined the union and have questions? We'll cover these topics, and more:


• Is the General Union a foreigners union?
• Are we affiliated with national or even international federations?
• What do my dues cover?
• Are meetings compulsory?
• Will you tell my company I am a member?
• What rights do I have?
