Japan Union Doro-Chiba Organizes Solidarity Action In Yokohama For Striking Conn Selmer UAW354 Workers
THE labor network TCCLU, Doro-Chiba, Kanagawa Amalgamated Labor Union and
other union activists of a total of 28 members, visited Yokohama Head Office of Nonaka
Boeki Co., Ltd at approximately 2:30 p.m. yesterday March 14. This company
is the distributor of horns by the Conn Selmer company which is being struck by the
UAW 364 workers.
When we talked initially on the intercom, Nonaka Boeki arrogantly stated
'Put a letter in a mail drop'. But two persons in charge, Mr. TATEISHI Toru,
Chief of Finance Div., and Mr. EJIRI Masamichi, Regional Manager, came down
to the entrance of the Nonaka's own building after being aware that numbers
of protesters were not so small.
They seemed to know about the current struggle of UAW364, but repeated that
they could not respond immediately to the requests stated in our protest
letter while adding they were not selling such a poor-quality instruments.
We fiercely challenged Nonaka's behavior to support unjust and shameful
union busting forced through by Conn-Selmer. And finally they committed themselves
to arrange another meeting fairly soon in the presence of more responsible
Doro-Chiba Support Committee
