  • Founded in 1991, the General Union is a labor union headquartered in Osaka, Japan. Membership is open to all nationalities and all workers. It has members working in trading companies, factories and restaurants but the majority of members are teachers and staff who are employed in language education at private conversation schools, high schools and universities in the Kansai and Chubu regions of Japan. Union members work at universities such as Ritsumeikan University, and language schools such as ECC, Berlitz and Gaba. Recent years have also seen the union launching major organizing drives among South American workers in Japan, along with Filipino workers. As of the 2014 executive elections with the resignation of Yamahara Katsuji as chair, the General Union has become the first union in Japan in which all titled officers are non-Japanese workers. The new union chair is Dennis Tesolat. The General Union is under the umbrella of the National Union of General Workers, which is itself part of the National Trade Union Council one of the three major trade union federations in Japan.
