During the Lehman shock, instead of retaining employment, they also asked employees to cut wages by 1-5%.However, after the year following the recovery of business performance, additional payments will be made with an interest rate of 1% on the cuts.

Remarks about labor

Nidec declared in October 2020 that it would achieve zero overtime by 2016.[3]..The background to this is that the acquired overseas company does not work overtime, and even if it takes a long vacation of one month, it is performing well.In the future, half of the wages paid for overtime will be added to bonuses, and half will be returned as investment for employee education.[4].

Asahi ShimbunIn an article about Nidec's financial results announcement for the fiscal year ended March 2008, President Nagamori said, "If you want to take a day off, you should stop."[5]It was reported that he developed his theory.According to this report, Nagamori said, "Because all employees work on holidays, we can grow and raise salaries. It is meaningless if the company leans and reorganizes as a result of taking a good rest."[5]He explained that the driving force behind the company's growth is the "hard work" of its employees.

In response to this statement, at the May Day Central Convention of the same yearJapan Trade Union FederationChairman'sTsuyoshi Takagi TheLabor Standards ActCriticized that it was against the purpose of[6]..Attend as a guestMinister of Health, Labour and Welfare OfYoichi MasuzoeHowever, we promise to strictly dispose of any violations after investigation.[6][7].

However, on April 4, Nidec said, "There is no such fact, and I am very sorry."[8]He argues that the purpose of the president's remarks at the press conference is to place the highest priority on securing stable employment and to state the company's management philosophy, which has achieved results under the same policy in corporate restructuring.[9]..The protest document by Nidec was originally "About the Asahi Shimbun article (morning edition on April 2008, 4)".[9]After that, the title of the above document was changed to "Partial coverage".[8].

In the same year, NidecToyo Denki SeizoAt that time, the Toyo Denki Manufacturing Labor Union expressed opposition to the acquisition due to concerns about the labor of Nidec.[10].
