Strike Rally in Manchester, Wednesday 31st

Fujitsu strikers will be attending a strike rally at noon on Wednesday 31st January, at the Methodist Central Hall, Oldham Street, Manchester City Centre, M1 1JQ.
The rally will be hosted by the PCS (civil servants) and we will also be joined by UNISON healthworkers who will be on strike that day too. This is particularly appropriate given that the NHS and civil service are among Fujitsu’s biggest customers.
Chair: Geoff Brown (Secretary, Manchester Trades Union Council)
Sue Bond (PCS Deputy President)
Sulayman Munir (Chair of Amicus Reps, Fujitsu Manchester)
Karen Reissmann (Community nurse and UNISON branch chair)
Doors open from 11:30am.
