Strike Rally Today

Fujitsu strikers took part in a very successful strike rally today in Manchester city centre. The rally was hosted by the PCS (civil servants) and we were joined by UNISON healthworkers who will be on strike today too. The NHS and civil service are among Fujitsu’s biggest customers.
We gathered in Piccadilly gardens and then had a short march to the venue for the very well attended rally, which was chaired by the secretary of Manchester Trades Council. There we heard speakers from the PCS union, our branch, the nurses, the NUS (students), the NUJ (journalists), Defend Council Housing, and others.
See here for pictures.

Industrial action is currently suspended but the fight continues.
