Rengo (Japan Trade Union Confederation) has drawn up a plan to refrain from indicating a specific political party it supports in its action policy for fiscal years 2020-2021. The decision is believed to have been promoted by the ongoing division of members of the now defunct Democratic Party of Japan into the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan and the Democratic Party for the People, causing a split within the labor organization over which party to support. The action policy is expected to be adopted at a regular convention in October. (Abridged)
