In Saitama Prefecture, municipal authorities proposed reducing bonuses not only for regular workers but also for non-regular workers by 0.05 percent.
Saitama Jichiroren held a union representative meeting and decided to stop the authorities from reducing bonuses for non-regular workers. Because it is illogical that their bonus reduction rate is the same as regular workers’, though non-regular workers are not given equal treatment with the regular.
Local unions’ negotiations resulted in realizing the withdrawal of the bonus reduction for non-regular municipal workers in 11 unions.
