The Purpose of this paper is to consider whether the Japan teachersʼ Union could have had an influence on the Law for the Special Regulations Concerning Educational Public Service Personnel （LEPS） when it was being enacted. To approach this question, I used the JTUʼs internal records. To analyze this question, I took three analytic views （section 2）: (1) what the JTU thought of the relationship between the National Public Service Act and the LEPS; (2) whether the JTU was able to find a route that would reflect its opinion about the LEPS; (3) whether the JTU was able to obtain information on the Law for the LEPS. In this way, I summarize how the JTU fought for the LEPS（section3 and 4）. I found that the JTU did not have as much impact on the LEPS as the JTU expected. But the JTU could gain an effective means for future struggles, by building connections with parliamentarians through this fight.
