About this spring battle "JAM" made by labor unions such as small and medium-sized enterprises in the machinery and metal industries has a policy of requesting a monthly wage increase of 10,500 yen or more in addition to "regular salary increase" and "base increase". I decided.

"JAM" is an industrial union made up of about 2000 labor unions centered on small and medium-sized enterprises such as the machinery and metal industries, and has about 390,000 members.



On the 18th, a central committee meeting was held in Tokyo, and Chairman Yoshihiro Yasukawa said, "Japan has low wages, and some say that it will drop out of developed countries as it is. It is inevitable to raise the base." I called for it.



On top of that, regarding this year's shunto, the average wage is 10,500 yen or more per month, with the amount equivalent to "regular salary increase" according to age and years of service being 4,500 yen, and the amount equivalent to "base up" to raise the basic salary is 6,000 yen. We have decided to request a wage increase.



It is the 9th consecutive year that "JAM" has requested "base up".



According to "JAM," about half of the labor unions that demanded "base up" in the spring battle last year actually won.



With raw material prices and energy prices rising even in this spring battle, how to expand wage increases among SMEs continues to be an issue.



Labor unions affiliated with "JAM" will submit a request to management next month.

Policy to request wage increase such as base increase based on "UA Zensen" 2% standard

"UA Zensen," which is made by labor unions such as textile chemistry and distribution, has announced a policy to demand a wage increase such as "base up" based on 2% in this spring battle.



This year, many companies are recovering their business performance compared to last year, and we would like to keep pace.



"UA Zensen" is an industrial union made up of about 2,300 labor unions such as textile chemistry, distribution, and service industries. It has about 1.82 million members and about 60% is non-regular employment such as part-time workers.



On the 18th, we held a press conference in Tokyo and clarified the policy plan for this spring battle.



According to this, after securing regular salary increases according to age and years of service, wage increases such as "base up" to raise the basic salary based on 2% will be requested.



Last year, due to the influence of the new coronavirus, the business performance of companies varied depending on the industry, and even the target of wage increase was allowed to be within a certain range, but this time, many companies are recovering their business performance and want to keep pace. ..



In addition, for those who work in non-regular employment such as part-time workers, we will ask for an increase in wages of 40 yen per hour as a guide.



"UA Zensen" will hold a central committee meeting on the 20th to formally decide the policy of the request.
