Nagoya : Institute of Technology

As part of its privatisation restructuring plan, Nagoya Institute of Technology is non-renewing part-timers en masse, Japanese and foreign at the end of March.

Hearing the rumours before the official announcement, two GU members there decided to do something about it and told the union. The GU put in demands, and some work was offered to one member who could not take it owing to other commitments. In the end this class was passed on to the other member. A small but welcome victory in an otherwise very bleak situation.
