Companies that export to Japan need to be aware that Japan will hold a national docker strike on February 28.

The strike was organized by the “All-Japan Harbor Labor Group” and will not only involve dock workers, but also staff from port-related industries. Because the "All Japan Harbor Labor Union" is an organization consisting of ports, trailers, warehouses, etc., with more than 20,000 members.

It is understood that the main appeal of the strike is to raise wages. The strike will start on February 28 and end on March 1.

In fact, not only will the “All-Japan Harbor Labor Union” be staged a strike, but in the near future, many labor unions in Japan will announce strikes – this is the famous trade union movement “Spring Fight” that is held every spring in Japan.
