Casualisation and insecure work is hitting Japanese workers

In late March, thousands of dockworkerswent on strike for the right to retain industry wide bargaining and for real wage increases. They also wanted an end to the increasing use of casualised and contractualised workers. In the same month, workers at Japan Post also took action calling for a halt to casualisation. As in many other countries, the ability for workers to organise is being undercut by the increasing use of casual and contract workers. Even in a sensitive industry like nuclear power, many workers faceinsecure employment conditions.
