FORWARDING. ARUDOU DEBITO IN TOKYO

==============================

From: Nick Wood, President, NUGW Tokyo Nambu UTU

Dear Arudou Debito,

We would be grateful if you would consider adding the announcement below to your regular mailing.

I will be honest, there is some debate over the Japanese wording of the petition. UTU opposes the strategy of outsourcing, a strategy that is being used to cut jobs and wages. This, apparently, can not be easily translated into Japanese, and there is concern that the petition might be construed as an attack on despatch workers. This is most definitely not the case.

NUGW Tokyo Nambu’s Executive approved the petition last night, and we hope you can give it your support. The due date for collection is July 1, 2007

Best wishes… Nick Wood

UTU Announcement:
“Stop Outsourcing – Job Security for All” Petition

The University Teachers Union has launched a “Stop Outsourcing – Job Security for All” petition and is seeking the support of individuals, organizations and unions in Japan.

The petition, which will be submitted in early July, aims to highlight the threat of outsourcing to educational standards at universities, the threat of outsourcing to the job security of university teachers, and the general threat posed by the strategy of outsourcing to the living standards and job security of all workers – both Japanese and foreign.

The petition reads:

安定した雇用の確保を求めます

内閣総理大臣 安倍 晋三 殿

人材派遣を中止せよ!

人材派遣会社からの教員派遣は、安定した雇用を破壊している。短期間の欠員を埋めるために派遣労働が用いられているが、これはリストラを増やし、賃金・福利厚生を減らすことが目的です。誰にでも安定した雇用を確保する権利があります。
今直ぐ、人材派遣会社からの雇用を中止するよう申し入れます。

STOP OUTSOURCING! JOB SECURITY FOR ALL!

To Prime Minister Shinzo Abe:

Outsourcing is destroying job security. Agency workers are needed to fill temporary vacancies, but outsourcing is being used by employers to cut jobs, cut wages and cut benefits. We all have a right to secure employment. Stop outsourcing our jobs now!

大学教員組合(UTU)の方針は下記の通りです。
「専門職教師の首切り、派遣教師の採用によって人件費を削減しようとしている大学があります。人材派遣会社からの教員雇用は、我々の安定した雇用や大学の教育水準に対して大打撃です。
今直ぐ、人材派遣を中止して下さい。」

University Teachers Union says: Some universities are trying to cut costs by using agency teachers and dismissing experienced instructors. Outsourcing threatens our job security and educational standards. Stop outsourcing now!
