Building Positive Labor-Management Relations through Active Communication

Our labor union operates under a union shop system. All employees except for those in management are subject to membership in the Tokyo Gas Labor Union based on a union shop agreement* and therefore the labor union participation rate of applicable employees is 100%.
The agreement with our labor union clearly states that “the company and the labor union confirm and mutually respect the company’s management rights and the labor union’s basic labor rights.” It honors the freedom to associate and organize as well as the right to act and bargain collectively.
The company and labor union establish sound and positive labor-management relations and exchange honest opinions on various management issues and labor conditions through periodic labor-management negotiations. Also, we strive to provide our non-labor union contract employees with a safe working environment and have signed a minimum wage agreement with them.
In addition, we are mindful of local laws and regulations and respect worker rights.

*An agreement under which employers agree to dismiss workers who do not become union members or who withdraw from or are expelled from the union. All qualifying employees are enrolled in the union.
