Relief order issued for Nestle Japan workers

August 13, 2008
The Central Labor Relations Commission (CLRC) has ruled Nestle Japan’s rejection of collective bargaining as an unfair labor practice and issued a relief order for union members.

The multinational food maker’s Japanese subsidiary was telling the union and its five branches that it would hold a collective bargaining session with them all at once at a place and time it designates.

The CLRC concluded that the company’s position represented a de facto rejection of collective bargaining.

The company did not pay for the time union members spent traveling to collective bargaining although it is required to do so under the labor agreement. This practice was also recognized as unfair by the CLRC.

Nestle Japan has been ordered by the Supreme Court to redress its unfair labor practice against its workers. - Akahata, August 13, 2008
