Striking Workers in Japan Continue Fightback

The good news from Japan is that having workers’ reps threatened by legal action has not dented Berlitz teachers’ willingness to continue their struggle for better pay and conditions. Workers there have opened fresh negotiations with management and have not let pending court dates water down their demands. In fact, the key to victory is to keep the pressure up and try to generalise the dispute further. The union’s excellent website and their extraordinary ability (considering advertising revenue) to get their views represented in the media can only help in this long and important struggle.  Hats off to the brave workers reps there, they are showing really incredible courage rarely seen in this industry. We salute you. Victory to Begunto.
