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.

Sign the petition – defend the union

Unite members across Fujitsu Services Limited in the UK are fighting over job security, for union recognition, against victimisation of reps, and over pay and pensions. Members nationally took industrial from 28 February including 15 days of strikes and ongoing action short of strike, after 12 days of local strikes in Manchester.

INDUSTRIAL ACTION IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED but members have voted by 92% to reject a company offer.

Further information is available here including a downloadable appeal for support leaflet and how to donate to our strike fund.
