ECC - The Issues

Why 100 yen? Starting salaries for full-time instructors have remained constant since the 29.5 hour contract was introduced ten years ago.

Increases are totally arbitrary. ECC teachers are being left behind, GABA teachers recently got a 100-200 yen increase per lesson. ECC's major competitor, AEON pays 270,000 for first year employees. How does your salary compare? Higher exchange rates, rising oil costs, rising rents and domestic inflation now mean that our salaries are buying even less. ECC increased tuition this April based on inflation, isn't it time that all teachers received an across the board increase. Are you happy with the ECC training system? More and more teachers are contacting the General Union regarding the hourly training rate, and forced overtime outside of the hours stipulated in their employment contracts. The General Union's solution is quite simple, conduct all training during regular working hours or pay the regular teaching rate stated in your contract. Click here for more on training pay.
