Postal workers agree to merge their unions

Date Posted: 2007-06-28

Two rival postal worker unions have agreed to ditch their differences and merge into what will be Japan’s largest labor union this Fall.

The two postal workers unions, the Japan Postal Workers’ Union with 136,000 members, and the 84,000-member All Japan Postal Labor Union, approved the merger in a Naha conference. The merger becomes effective after October 1st, when Japan Post is privatized.

The actual merger on October 22nd will create the Japan Postal Group Union. With its 220,000 members, it will move ahead of the All NTT Workers Union of Japan as the country’s largest union. The NTT union has 180,000 members. The two unions made the decision in order to increase its bargaining power with the four firms that will replace Japan Post, voting not to divide itself into four company-level unions.
