We often report on the larger schools but here is a report from a smaller school. A long time member recently heard that there were mistakes in pay checks. After reviewing his records, he realised there were errors dating back as far as 5 years.

If the member had approached the Labour Standards Office he would have found that there is a 2 year limit to back claims. Instead, the union negotiated and was able to win the member hundreds of thousands of yen more than if he had left it up to Labour Standards.

People working in small schools often wonder the benefit of being a union member. This is just one example.
