Manchester Dispute

Following the decision of members in Manchester to ballot for industrial action over pay, as well as the outstanding issues around union recognition, redundancy and redeployment, plans are being made for the campaign.
Our Manchester group has published a summary of the issues and appeal for support.
The successes of our members in Manchester often benefit staff across the company and beyond. For example, the extra sick pay and holidays won in 2003 benefited helpdesk staff nationally, not just in Manchester. The national distribution of pay scales to members throughout the UK was possible because of our successful CAC claim in Manchester.
Would HR be treating people across the country even worse if they weren’t worried about staff seeing the contrast with those covered by union recognition?
Members in Manchester are asking for your support – please read the appeal to find out how you can help.
All Fujitsu staff, friends, family and supporters are invited to attend the event planned for the evening of the 26th September in Manchester – which includes some great speakers and a free-screening of the film “Bread & Roses”, directed by Cannes Film Festival winner Ken Loach.
