Union can change deteriorating workplace ~ Japan Post workers confess on Labornet TV

 “Were you able to tell all?” Asked after the program was aired, YOSHIHARA Shinji appeared content and said, “I did 100%.” The postal worker spoke on the internet TV of his experience of being bullied at the workplace and diagnosed with adjustment disorder, which cornered him into suicidal thoughts.
 Another worker, KANEKO Takanobu, who was on a casual contract also testified on Labornet TV how remorseful he felt when he was terminated with a single phone call. KURAHAYASHI Hiroshi of Japan Postal Workers’ Union talked about a podium at Shin-toshin Post Office, which caused karoshi suicide. Workers are forced to stand on this podium for making professional errors and to state regrets in front of some 300 colleagues. They are also target of verbal abuse. Workers so fearful of having to stand on this podium start crying, they say. Ten years have passed since the postal service was privatized, but deterioration of the workplace, which was caused by profit pursuit, was so serious beyond imagination. “The union saved me,” Yoshihara said. “It’s the management that is heavily responsible, not ourselves. Don’t endure it. Talk to the union.” (By Labornet TV project)
