JCP and Denki-Joho Union agree to further advance labor movement

November 8, 2023
Japanese Communist Party Workers Bureau chief Ohata Motoo held talks with representatives of the Denki-Joho Union, which organizes individual workers in the electronics and information industries, on November 7 at the JCP head office in Tokyo.

Denki-Joho Union Chair Maita Tokuji talked about an experience in which the union, with the cooperation of local JCP lawmakers, succeeded in putting a stop to Mitsubishi Electric Corporation’s use of a “banishment room” tactic as part of its unfair treatment of its workers. He cited another experience in which with the help from the union, laid-off Mitsubishi Electric non-regular workers won a victorious settlement. He said that the union’s efforts to protect workers based on international labor standards have significant impacts on large corporations.

Ohata, showing his respect, said that the Denki-Joho Union has played a significant role as a fort of resistance of workers. He pointed out that antiworker practices such as rampant layoffs across industries have resulted in Japan’s stagnant economy, and said that this situation has raised attention to and expectations for labor unions. He expressed his determination to continue to work together with the Denki-Joho Union in order to advance Japan’s labor movement.
