Relationship with Labor Unions

Mitsubishi Electric and Mitsubishi Electric labor unions strongly realize that it is important for them to cooperate in promoting the company's growth and improving the working conditions of labor union members based on an awareness of the company's social mission and responsibility, and to form and maintain a labor-management relationship founded on mutual sincerity and trust. Based on this realization, they enter into a labor contract by consent of both parties and mutually comply with the contract in good faith.

Under the union-shop system, employees (excluding management level employees) become union members after completing a trial period, as a rule. To facilitate mutual negotiations, the company and labor unions establish a management council and labor council, and endeavor to seek resolutions by holding thorough rational discussions on equal footing, as a basic principle.

Group companies also share the principle of holding thorough rational discussions between labor and management, and endeavor to maintain and improve sound working conditions and workplace environments in compliance with labor-related laws and regulations concerning employment, personnel affairs, work duties, wages, working hours and immigration control in the countries and regions where they do business, as well as with internal regulations and procedures.
