Creating Sound Labor-Management Relations

KDDI's Approach ―Sound Labor-Management Relations

We aim to further promote decent work for all employees by working toward improving labor-management relations through honest discussions and negotiations with representatives of all employees.

Creating Sound Labor-Management Relations

Signing of Union Shop Agreement and Cooperation between Labor and Management

We guarantee the right to freedom of association and collective bargaining. We adopted a Union Shop Agreement that requires all employees in Japan, except for managers and temporary employees, to join the KDDI Labor Union starting in January 2012, and we signed the Labor-Management Relations Agreement, Union Activities Agreement and Collective Bargaining Agreement with the KDDI Workers Union. As of the end of March 2023, the number of union members in the labor union in question is 10,587. We continuously engage in labor-management discussions through various forums such as collective bargaining, administrative negotiations, and labor-management committees, addressing various issues, including the improvement of working conditions, and fostering close communication between labor and management. The results of our past labor-management negotiations, agreements that benefit both parties, include the introduction of KDDI Version Job Style Personnel System, wage increases, the implementation of performance-based bonuses, expansion of the inter-shift interval system, greater flexibility in short working hours childcare system, elimination of time limits for the use of caregiving short-time work, enhancement of the annual leave accumulation system, promotion of health management, leave for infertility treatment, initiatives to prevent harassment, conclusion of an in-house minimum wage agreement, abolishment of the core hours in the flextime system, expansion of flexible time periods, application to parenting and caregiving short-time workers, and year-round negotiations on labor conditions. With regard to personnel relocation, we have established in the labor agreement the requirement to provide notice of relocation, among other matters, at least five days before the effective date. We have also established a system to accept complaints from individuals who have received such notices.

Severance Pay and Pension System

In August 2020, KDDI introduced a defined-contribution corporate pension plan for employees to whom the KDDI Version Job Style Personnel System applies. This plan supports employees' life plans and autonomous asset-building efforts. To enable each employee to build their assets in accordance with their wishes, we hold briefings and provide extensive investment education through e-learning.
