Greetings from the president Aiming to be an organization that can respond to diversifying societies and environments

Union Tokyo celebrated its 30th anniversary in December 2019. By the 30th anniversary, the environment surrounding us has changed drastically and is still changing. For this reason, Tokyo has decided on a new vision for the 30th anniversary. In order to be a sustainable organization, it is necessary to respond to diversifying societies and environments and to promote initiatives to connect to the next generation. In order to achieve this, we will clearly show our vision based on the slogan "We will change the future", and our constituent organizations, block co-ops, and district co-operatives will work together in the same direction. The We will continue to focus on a wide range of activities such as volunteers, participation in local events, street appeal, and labor consultations.

Main Activities

Solving labor disputes and 
creating connections among 
fellow workers

We set up a labor union (Rengo Union Tokyo) in which you can get involved alone, then we support people who want to form a labor union and we do our best to resolve the worker's trouble of a labor consulting.

Annual spring labor offensive

Every spring, we aim to improve employment conditions through advertising campaigns aimed at joint struggles in this regard. Moreover, we take on the challenge of supporting local smalland mediumsized firms in order to reduce poverty and inequality.

Call for policymaking and
institutional systems

For individual workers' problems that are unable to be solved through workplace negotiations alone, we issue demands to national and metropolitan political parties, as well as employer's associations.
Rengo Tokyo also strives to propose policies and systems through governmental and municipal councils.

Communitybased approach

We strive vigorously to realize locallybased policies and institutions with local assembly members through our 4 block liaison committees and 29 district committees. We also make public appeals regarding our movement throughout the year by making speeches in front of major train stations.

Peace, environment, and human

We tackle problems such as territorial issues; movements related to peace, the environment and energy; and discrimination such as human rights infringements.
Together with other organizations, we also demand the resolution of additional pressing national issues.

Disaster area support and
volunteer work

We undertake daytoday tasks including volunteer training, coordinating withNPOs and disabled organizations, and commuter drills for returning home following a largescale earthquake. We also utilize our organizational strengths in areas such as donations and dispatching volunteers to disaster areas.
