Union demands members' contracts be renewed at Nippon Steel & Sumikin Intercom

Nippon Steel & Sumikin Intercom has answered union demands in the negative, stating that union members' contracts will not be renewed. The union members have more than 15 years of service. Revisions to the Labour Contract Law in August 2012 now make it necessary for employers to have social acceptable reasons for non-renewing contracts that have been renewed several times.

The union is now asking for Collective Bargaining. The demands are (1) Withdraw salary cuts (2) Withdraw the non-renewal of union members (3) Obey the Labour Contract Law.
