Tepco Workers Accept Pay Cuts After Fukushima Nuclear Crisis

Tokyo Electric Power Co. workers agreed to a management proposal to cut their pay by as much as 25 percent out of a sense of responsibility for the world’s worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl, their union said.

“Most union members didn’t object to a pay cut, considering the situation at the company and the effect on society from the nuclear accident,” Koji Sakata, secretary-general of the Tokyo Electric Power Workers Union, said by telephone today.
