Communication between management and labor

Policy and management framework

The Asahi Kasei Group strives to maintain a constructive partnership between management and labor. Discussions on the overall management of the Asahi Kasei Group are held on a regular basis between the management of Asahi Kasei Corp. and the labor union representing some 9,000 members, and separate discussions are periodically held at each business unit and operating site. In addition, regular meetings with the federation of labor unions are held to provide the venue to enhance open communication between management and labor.

We comply with minimum wage laws of each region, and support international frameworks on labor issues such as the UN Global Compact.


In fiscal 2017, the Asahi Kasei Group had zero violations of labor standards.
