“Mimio” Union Seeks Retirement Withdrawal, Appeal sought Relief Corona Impact May 22 18:16
The management company in the tokyo metropolitan area of The Japanese restaurant “Mimio”, known for its “udon snook” of pot dishes, has dismissed employees due to the new Coronavirus and has called for a retraction by the Labor Relations Commission.
It is a labor union that nine people who worked in “Mimio” in the metropolitan area join ed.
Tokyo Mimio, the operating company, had six stores in the Tokyo metropolitan area, but due to a decrease in sales due to the spread of the virus, it announced plans to close all stores by the end of this month and to retire approximately 200 employees.
According to the complaint, the management company has asked employees to sign a retirement agreement, and some of those who did not sign a “dismissal notice” have not responded to those who signed but are not required to withdraw.
The union is asking the Tokyo Metropolitan Labor Relations Board to withdraw the dismissal notice, the retirement agreement, and the continuation of the business, saying that it is unfair to enforce the dismissal.
One of the people who participated in the allegations, a former store manager, said, “There was not enough explanation as to why it was closed, and i couldn’t understand the terms of my retirement. We hope that we will continue our business by shrinking our stores.”
Tokyo Mimio “I recognize that it is not unjust”
Regarding the allegations, Tokyo Mimio said, “We have proceeded with the consent of most of our employees, and we are very sorry that nine people have raised objections. I recognize that this is not unfair.”
A former employee “thought it was a lie when i was asked to retire.”
A man in his 40s who had been working as a cook in Mimio for more than 20 years was told by the company late last month that he would retire all his employees following the closure of his stores in Tokyo.
The man signed the Retirement Agreement in response to the company’s request at the interview, but then decided to ask for the withdrawal because there was no explanation from the company for its efforts to keep the store and maintain employment, and that retirement compensation was not adequately paid.
The man said, “I thought I was going to get through the effects of the new coronavirus and get back to work, so When I was asked to retire, I thought it was a lie. I’ve spent half of my life at the company, and I think i’ve had a little more close-to-staff editing.”
At a store in Tokyo where the man worked, on the last business day, a familiar customer who regretted closing was not immediately followed, and he said, “I felt that i had been supported by customers again. I was proud to work at Beautiful U, so I hope to continue my business.”
