Losing koma after contract signed due to enrollment?

Is it in your employment contract that your second semester class (and your pay) could be cancelled? The General Union has found this cropping up more and more and is intent on stopping this practice, and recently we did.

A member at Tezukayama University approached the union with this very problem. After trying to talk with the employer the problem was taken up with the Nara Labour Standards Office and the university was directed to pay 60% of the wages during the period.

Let us know if you have a similar issue.
