Petition for Equal Treatment and Regular Employment for Irregular Postal Staff
At this time, as a business with a high proportion of irregular staff, JP group should switch to equal treatment and regular employment. We strongly urge they realize the following demands, in order that all their irregular staff members can have hope for their future at work.
1. Make employees “associate staff” after three years of limited-term contract renewals; after two years as associate staff, employ all who wish it as regular staff.
2. Along with fair and proper employment of regular staff, make large increases in the numbers of single-year appointments
3. Raise the minimum wage for hourly contract employees to at least 1200 YEN per hour everywhere nationwide
4. Where there are disparities between regular and irregular workers in lump sums or allowances (cold-weather area, nighttime special, early-start etc.) or in benefits, correct these.
