South Wales Delegation Report – Part 2

We travelled across to Newport, South Wales and met up with a local Amicus member who helped us leaflet the Fujitsu helpdesk offices in Newport.
All help desk staff on the early shift were given leaflets and we left more material for new and prospective members.
Some members and non members came out for quick chat about the dispute and this also included temporary staff located there.
The response was very good and we collected quite a few email addresses of people who wanted more information or to set up a local meeting.
Our group moved onto Cardiff. After breakfast we moved onto the DWP offices in Cardiff city centre and met people from the PCS Union to discuss our dispute. They advised they would mention our dispute at their local meetings and send a letter of support with a possible donation.
After the meeting we set off back to Manchester.
