MessageSujet: Quand ca grogne au Japon   Ven 24 Mar 2006 - 0:11

Fait toujours un peu exceptionnel, une greve s'est produite au Japon ce jeudi 23 mars 2006.

Et pour etre tout a fait exact, il s'agit d'une greve a la compagnie aerienne nippone ANA qui n'avait pas connu pareil mouvement depuis 1996. Les revendications sont multiples mais la plus importante porte bien evidemment sur les augmentations de salaires. Il est vrai que depuis que JAL est sur la pente descendante (cf. autres articles cites, sur le sujet) ANA a su tirer parti de cette occasion de prendre la main, et d'accroitre beaucoup ses parts de marche aux depens de son rival de toujours. ANA gagne plus, il etait presque inevitable que son personnel veuille que leur part du gateau suive...

Helas, cela s'est traduit par l'annulation de rien de moins que 115 vols et le report d'une quarantaine d'autres, tous des vols domestiques car a ANA, si on veut bien porter un coup de semonce aux consequences economiques limitees, on ne veut pas couler la boite pour autant...

Pour en savoir davantage, reportez-vous donc a l'article paru ce jour dans le quotidien national japonais ASAHI SHIMBUN que voila...




4 ANA unions stage strike, affecting 155 flights
Four unions of the All Nippon Airways Co. group started a 24-hour strike Thursday over safety measures, causing the expected cancellation of 115 domestic flights and delays for 40 others.

The last time a workers' strike has forced ANA to cancel domestic flights was in 1996.

ANA said the strike, which started just before 4 a.m., would not affect international flights.

"As a public transportation system, it is extremely regrettable to cause so many cancellations and delays, and we are deeply sorry about that," ANA President Mineo Yamamoto said Thursday in a statement issued jointly with four presidents of affiliated companies.

"All ANA group companies will put forth every effort to deal with the matter and try to straighten things out as soon as possible, as well as minimize disruptions at airports," the statement said.

Five of the ANA group's labor unions had been negotiating with management about wages and safety issues.

Just before midnight Wednesday, the All Nippon Airways Crew Association (ACA) struck a deal with management.

But talks broke down with the remaining four unions, including the Air Nippon Crew's Association. The unions informed the airline that they would walk off the job at 3:54 a.m.

The four unions are demanding management ensure operational safety, union officials said. They said they dropped their demands concerning basic wage hikes and other issues just before going on strike.

According to ANA officials, the canceled flights will mainly be those connecting Tokyo's Haneda International Airport, Chubu Centrair International Airport in southern Aichi Prefecture, Osaka International Airport at Itami, and Fukuoka Airport with other regional airports.

Meanwhile, four labor unions of Japan Airlines Corp. struck a deal with the group's management to avert a threatened strike, JAL officials said.

Three of the unions reached an agreement with management on Wednesday evening.

The remaining union, the Japan Airlines Domestic Pilot Union, which consists mainly of pilots of the former Japan Air System Co. (JAS), and management settled their differences at around 3 a.m. Thursday.JAS has merged with JAL.

Autre sujet de grogne de ces derniers jours, la norme de securite electrique PSE.

Nous en avions deja parle dans cet autre sujet, cette norme equivalente au NF francais, devait rendre invendable tout produit fabrique hors de son cahier des charges, au 1er mars 2006. Devant l'impreparation generale et la brusquerie de la mesure, les autorites publiques ont "accorde" un delai de preparation supplementaire d'un mois aux commercants pour qu'ils ne proposent plus a la vente que des produits respectant les exigeances de la nouvelle norme, des le 1er avril 2006.

Outre le fait - capital - que cette mesure va ruiner au sens propre, les magasins d'electro-menager d'occasion (bravo pour l'ecologie !) les instruments de musique electriques aussi sont concernes et sont donc appeles, quelle que soit leur valeur artistique ou historique (!!!) a etre au mieux, consideres comme des pieces de musee, au pire a etre detruits comme de vieilles ordures domestiques.

Devant ce massacre culturel, de nombreux artistes - au premier rang desquels se trouve le celebre musicien japonais Sakamoto Ryuichi - se sont eleves contre cette reglementation inepte tout droit sortie d'un esprit inculte et obtu pour exiger que les instruments de musique non-PSE beneficient d'une mesure d'exemption au meme titre que... les ordinateurs et les telephones. Ce serait bien le moins que l'on puisse faire.

Pour en savoir davantage, voyez l'article paru hier dans le journal quotidien national MAINICHI SHIMBUN...


Musicians speak out against ban on sale of old electrical appliances

Musician Ryuichi Sakamoto seeks revisions to regulations banning the sale of certain electrical household appliances without a safety mark, at a news conference in Tokyo on Thursday.Ryuichi Sakamoto and other Japanese musicians spoke out against regulations banning the sale of certain electrical appliances without a PSE safety mark from April, saying that not just vintage musical instruments but all second-hand electrical household appliances should be exempted.

Sakamoto and the other musicians were expected to file a petition seeking changes to the regulations to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry on Thursday afternoon. Three other musicians, including songwriter and performer Hideki Togi and music producer Kenzo Saeki joined Sakamoto in the protest.

"Whether something is vintage or not is not a matter for government officials to decide. It's clear that the government's stance was that musicians wouldn't say anything if musical instruments were exempted (from the regulations)," Sakamoto said.

Under the Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law, the sale of certain electrical appliances that do not bear the PSE mark, which certifies the safety of goods, will be banned starting in April.

The ministry had decided to exempt vintage, high-value second-hand musical instruments from the regulations because of their scarcity.

Finalement, les choses semblent s'arranger du cote de cette affaire de norme electrique PSE, du moins en ce qui concerne les instruments de musique.
Les musiciens et collectionneurs d'instruments de musique electroniques auront donc eu gain de cause, en reussissant a persuader le Ministere de l'Economie, du Commerce et de l'Industrie, d'inscrire ces articles-ci a la liste des produits beneficiant d'une derrogation au reglement exigeant qu'a partir du 1er avril 2006, tout appareil electrique vendu au Japon soit ordinairement porteur du nouveau label de qualite et de securite PSE.

Comme quoi, il ne fallait pas desesperer...



Gov't names 'vintage products' exempted from PSE safety mark
Vintage guitar amps and other old musical instruments have been included in the government's online list of "vintage products" that will be exempted from a controversial law banning the sale of certain electrical goods not bearing the PSE safety mark.

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry released the list on its Web site on Thursday. Most of the 1,918 items on the list, categorized by maker and model, are musical instruments produced between 1940 and 1998, such as Fender guitar amps from the 1950s.

If retailers show that the items they are selling are on the list, they are able to sell them without the PSE mark.

The list of exemptions was based on a survey questioning mainly major musical instrument retailers. Requests to include items that aren't on the list will be received, and the items will be added to the list if they are accepted.

On March 22, the ministry said it would accept all products produced prior to 1989 as vintage products, but musicians and others complained that it was inappropriate to set a time limit, promoting the ministry to make changes.

The PSE mark was introduced to certify the safety of electrical products under the Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law. The sale of certain electrical goods not bearing the mark will be banned from April. (Mainichi)

Autre cas propre a provoquer la ralerie populaire: celui du nouveau complexe de logements pour parlementaires japonais.

Bien que de nombreux politiciens ne cessent de repeter qu'il faut diminuer les depenses publiques, reduire les ecarts de revenus entre riches et pauvres, depenser l'argent des impots avec mesure et circonspection, pratiquement aucun n'a a ce jour propose la baisse des remunerations des membres de la Diete ou du gouvernement, sans parler, bien sur, du batiment dont la construction sera achevee en fevrier 2007, c'est dire si l'on est dans l'actualite la plus fraiche du moment.

Ce complexe a d'ores et deja ete qualifie d'hotel de luxe par ceux qui se sont emus publiquement de cette depense somptuaire totalement indecente a tout point de vue. La residence en question se situe a 10mn a pied de la Diete, en plein coeur d'Akasaka, l'un des quartiers les plus demandes de la Capitale. Il fait 28 etages (detail qui a son importance, car ont ete construits plus d'appartements que necessaires, ce qui deja defie toute logique... economique) et renferme pas moins de 300 appartements de 82m2 chacun, loues pour la impayable somme de 92.000 yens par mois. Quand on sait que de nombreux etrangers louent leur piaule grande comme un timbre poste en "foyer pour etranger", deja dans les 80.000 yens par mois en banlieue de Tokyo, on comprend aisement l'insolence d'un tel loyer, a l'heure ou les futurs beneficiaires de ces largesses indues, lancent dans les medias des appels paniques au relevement de l'age de la retraite, a des deremboursements divers en matiere de sante, et a toutes choses qui nous rappellent d'ailleurs ce qui se vit en France...

Le prix du batiment est annonce officiellement comme se montant a 33,4 milliards de yens, ponctionnes directement sur le budget de l'Etat: il n'y a pas de plaisir ou il y a de la gene... En realite, ce chiffre n'est donne qu'a titre figuratif car un calcul plus juste permet d'arriver a 50 milliards de yens de depenses pour la construction de ces logements pour soit-disants representants du Peuple, soit 160 millions de yens par appartement s'ils devaient etre vendus au prix du marche.

Tout de meme, cela laisse reveur, un appartement de grande classe, au loyer de 92.000 yens par mois, au lieu d'un million suivant les prix des locations constates dans le quartier, a standing et surface identique. Rien que pour cela, ca donnerait presque envie de devenir parlementaire... C'est l'expose de ce genre d'avantages - nombreux au demeurant - qui permet une meilleure prise de conscience de ce que nous coutent nos elus et certains haut-fonctionnaires, voila pourquoi ils sont souvent prets a tout - pour "parvenir" comme on disait au XIXeme siecle - et a vendre pere et mere pour conserver ou avoir enfin le droit de mordre de temps en temps le peuple a la carotide, comme de maudits vampires sans scrupules.

Indignes.

Pour retrouver tous les details de ce scandal loin d'etre unique en son genre, et au Japon et dans les autres pays du Monde helas, reportez-vous sans plus tarder a l'article paru ce jour dans le quotidien national japonais de langue anglaise, le fameux JAPAN TIMES ci-dessous.




Lawmakers' posh digs on cheap criticized
Subsidized opulence flies in face of vows to correct income disparities

Starting April 1, House of Representatives members will be able to take up residence in three-bedroom luxury apartments in a new, 28-story complex in the upscale Akasaka district in the heart of Tokyo, a 10-minute walk from the Diet.

And the best part is the rent -- just 92,000 yen per month.

The Akasaka complex is "a palace" and lawmakers will live like royalty, Democratic Party of Japan Diet member Takashi Kawamura said.

The housing "is basically a high-class hotel. There was even supposed to be a gym and a sky lounge, but they were scrapped" due to public criticism.

The government-subsidized housing complexes in the heart of Tokyo for civil servants and Diet lawmakers, with their cheap rents, have drawn recent public criticism in the wake of the "love nest" scandal late last year involving Tax Commission chief Masaaki Honma, an Osaka-based economics professor who reportedly kept a lover in one such Tokyo apartment.

Ironically, Honma had advocated that the government sell off property assets, especially those that are subsidized, that sit on high-value plots.

After he stepped down in disgrace, lawmakers have been shying away from moving into the Akasaka complex for fear of upsetting voters.

Originally built in 1963, the Akasaka complex for Lower House members underwent a complete makeover starting in 2004. The building, to be completed in February, boasts 300 82-sq.-meter units. The total cost was 33.4 billion yen, all of which came from the government budget.

However, Kawamura estimates the actual value to be about 50 billion yen, or 160 million yen per unit, by adding the land price to the construction cost, based on the assumption that it would be sold on the market, not offered for rent. The plot belongs to the Lower House.

"So the lawmakers who are trying to convince the public that they are striving to correct the disparity (between rich and poor) will actually be moving into a symbol of that disparity," Kawamura said. "What is that all about?"

At present, there are no laws on Diet members' housing. The Lower House Steering Committee last June strengthened regulations by laying out rules to limit the apartments to lawmakers from outside Tokyo's 23 wards and their families.

The committee in 1984 decided rent prices should be 5 percent more than that of bureaucrat housing, a rule that has continued, said a spokesman for the Lower House.

In addition to the Akasaka high-rise, which is still under construction, there are three complexes for Lower House lawmakers, in the Takanawa, Aoyama and Kudanshita districts. All are on prime commercial property.

Following the completion of the 300-unit Akasaka complex, the apartment blocks in Aoyama and Takanawa will be demolished in June. The land, now owned by the Lower House, will be handed over to the Finance Ministry as government property.

Despite criticism that rent at the Akasaka complex is too low, the 92,000 yen is higher than other such housing -- prices elsewhere range from just 13,000 yen to 60,000 yen, according to media reports.

Living in the new Akasaka apartment "is the ultimate moral hazard," Kawamura said. Lawmakers "should be ashamed for being able to live in these 160 million yen apartments for one-10th the (market) price thanks to what little money taxpayers make, while chanting (the need) to correct (income) disparities." Typical monthly rent for a similar unit in the private sector costs some 1 million yen.

During a recent news conference, Liberal Democratic Party Secretary General Hidenao Nakagawa stated his intention to rent a unit in the new Akasaka complex.

"The price was decided in the Lower House Steering Committee with thorough discussions involving lawmakers, including opposition party members," Nakagawa said. "I believe the price was set in accordance with the rules."

But Nakagawa added there is room for mid- to long-term debate over the issue, including the possibility of establishing a law on Diet members' housing.

It is up to each Diet member to decide whether to rent an apartment in the Akasaka complex, Nakagawa said. "This is not a residence, it is a lodging for (lawmakers to be able to do their) job -- to deliberate (on bills) in the Diet."

Under severe public scrutiny, however, Lower House members have begun to consider options other than Akasaka opulence, including Kawamura.

Kawamura, who had been living in the Aoyama complex, decided to move out and rent an apartment in a quiet neighborhood in Bunkyo Ward.

The two-bedroom unit is a mere 25 sq. meters and the monthly rent is 75,000 yen. No sleek black car for Kawamura either, who will be commuting to the Diet by subway.

"The Diet (affects) the lives of the general public, and it is only natural that (lawmakers) live just like others do," he said. "I have done the most natural thing -- I have thrown away my special rights and will now live like the rest of the public."
