About Kyodoren

The Beginning of the KYODOREN
People with disabilities, especially severe disabilities, are not given the opportunity to work.Since the early 1970s, places have begun to create places to voluntarily work with people with disabilities and people without disabilities in various parts of the country.At the same time, there are many places in various places that are said to be small work places.What is the difference between a place where you work together and a small work place?
1. People with disabilities and healthy people work together

2. It was to establish the right to work for people with disabilities.

In October 1984, the “National Union of Communities Against Discrimination” was created in October 1984, with joint demands on the government.As the development of each place has continued, we will aim for social and economic independence as an activity, and we will promote the creation of “co-working offices”.

and to social workplaces
In 2001, francesco Sanna, a young leader of the Social Cooperative from Italy, was invited to the 18th Joint National Convention in Aichi, and in 2002 and 2003, we had a series of exchanges with social cooperatives in Italy.

1. The percentage of workers with handicaps is more than 30%

2. The handicap refers not only to the medical model (three disabilities) in Japan, but also to social handicaps such as minors who have problems with drugs, alcohol ism, criminality, or family environment.

3. There are no people with disabilities, including volunteer union members, and they are equal union members.

We deeply sympathized with the social cooperatives that are characterized by the above, and confirmed the agreement with what the joint coalition aims at, so we have developed a new direction for the joint coalition as a “social workplaces.”

At the 26th Joint National Convention in Aichi, 2009, he advocated the creation of “social workplaces” for people who have been excluded from the labor market in solidarity with people who are struggling with various difficulties (people who are socially excluded).

And now, we are working toward the legalization of social establishments.
