Japan: NOVA Union Action Day

Tomorrow (October 15), NOVA Union will organize an action day to give pressure to the President Nozomu Sahashi for filing to the court for bankruptcy protection, so that employees can retrieve 80% of their unpaid waves through government subsidies and start to receive unemployment benefits. Debito has blogged the Union's action call e-mail. NOVA is the biggest school network in Japan and is at the verge of bankruptcy.

Check out my new blog to help teachers teach English online with the likes of Skype or MSN Messenger or whatnot:
