Plans for Next Week

We plan to be striking again Monday to Wednesday.
As always, the effectiveness of the action depends as much on the activity of members as on the numbers refusing to work.
To make the necessary arrangements, your reps need to identify:
– Volunteers to picket at Central Park between 6:30am-10am (please commit to particular days and times)
– Volunteers to go on delegations involving overnight stays, helping unionise other Fujitsu sites, raise support etc
There will also be delegations within range to travel on the day and activity in the Amicus Prestwich office.
Please let rep Nikki Aldridge know what you can do.
On Wednesday evening we have the big “Organising for Fighting Union” rally in Manchester, which we want everyone to come to if they possibly can. Though the rally itself starts at 7:30pm, the building will be open from 6pm and a buffet is being laid on for strikers. The time before the rally is our opportunity to chat to other trade unionists and really build support for our dispute. Friends and family are welcome too.
