AKK Yoshida workmen’s-accident trial.
On 13th , there was a trial of Mr. Yoshida  of  AKK (Aisin kiko Co.,Ltd) .
This trial asks for workmen’s-accident recognition, namely cancellation of “determination” of the country

At this trial, “counterargument document” from a complainant to country was submitted, and it became a substantial trial.

Although the effect has shown up more clearly than before the treatment, the functional recovery after long times is needed.
The 2nd collective bargaining in Denso about the workmen’s-accident problem
On 6th, ATU carried out the 2nd collective bargaining in Denso’s head office about the workmen’s-accident problem of Mr. Takahira, a member of ATU.
At the beginning, we protested and asked the reason to the company, why they didn’t give us the answer,
even though both parties promised that the company will answer immediately in written form to the offered items at previous collective bargaining ( held on 26th October ).
As the occurrence of industrial accident is true, the company cannot say they are irresponsible.
ATU asked for compensation concretely to him because he could not work under the medical treatment of the injury for about one year, and submitted the document again.
In advance of collective bargaining, in the early morning on the day, at JR Kariya Station,
we distributed 1500 fliers written about Mr. Takahira’s workmen’s-accident problem and advertised to the workers who attend their office.
