Labor and Management Cooperate to Develop Better Working Environment

Employees of NSK are represented by a single organization, the NSK Labor Union. Regular labor management consultations are conducted at a Group-wide labor-management conference (Central Management Council) three times a year, and at a labor-management conference at individual business sites (Single Unit Management Council) once a month. These labor-management conferences enable an exchange of opinions not only about the improvement of working conditions and the company's management policies, but also about improvement of the work environment with a view toward solving issues through labor-management communication.
