Complaint to Osaka Labor Relations Commission against Kindai over its age limitation on part-time teachers

EWA has demanded from the beginning of its formation of the Kindai Branch that the University withdraw its work rule regulating the age limitation of 65 in the hiring of part-time teachers. In 2019 we engaged in a tense struggle because a union member has reached the age of 65. At our collective bargainings and dialogues, Kindai changed their reasons for the age limitation, but they would not change their policy. Therefore, on 9 March EWA submitted a complaint to Osaka Labor Relations Commission against Kindai’s unfair labor practices such as contract termination in a disadvantageous manner, negotiating not in good faith, and undermining the Union.
