Labor Union and Management Partnership

Under our union shop scheme, we respect collective bargaining rights and freedom of association as the basic rights of workers, thereby striving to maintain a good labor-management relationship. The scheme also enables us to share information and exchange opinions between labor and management on a regular basis. Our biannual Labor-Management Conference in particular is aimed at strengthening solidarity through active debate, covering subjects such as recent issues, strategies and policies in each sector, and establishing a shared direction in the interests of the company’s sustainable growth for the future. Also, management spend substantial time on careful explanation and consultation with labor upon facing such events as business restructuring.
