To foil pickup lines drawn up outside the Tokyo Stock Exchange, officials opened the doors to non-union workers two hours before the usual time, at 6:30a.m.. As a consequence, when the strikers turned up for their demonstrations work was proceeding normally, behind closed doors.
The strike, which has resulted in six hundred and twenty-two employees witholding their labour, is over a wage claim. The union wants a flat increase of about GBP1:15 per month (4.50 dollars), and a summer bonus of about GBP71.(196.6 dollars). The Stock Exchange employers have offered GBP1 more per month and about GBP50 for summer bonus.
Not satisfied with this the union has decided to continue the strike. With the Stock Exchange employees are 1,000 sympathizers of the General Council of Japanese Labour Unions. Prominent union members and organisors stand on a lorry and urge the strikers to hold out until a more favourable offer is forthcoming and the Tokyo police patrol the area as a precaution against violence.
