Pay 2007

Most people should now have received their pay review letter from their manager. [In Manchester, letters are late but pay rises are still expected to be paid in the April pay packet]. Inflation is higher than for many years (RPI up 4.6% in the year to February 2007), so for most of us the letter will be telling us how big a pay cut we’ve got in real terms.
In a context where the company is increasingly profitable and we’re expected to work harder and harder, we’re getting a smaller and smaller share of the value of the work we do. Fujitsu is likely to continue this approach until staff across Fujitsu get better organised.
PCS members in Capgemini (on the HMRC contract in Telford) recently voted for strike action against a below-inflation pay deal. This quickly (without any action being taken) resulted in Capgemini improving their offer, which we understand PCS members are now considering. Being prepared to fight doesn’t guarantee you win, but it does give you a chance.
Don’t forget that the HR guidelines for managers carrying out the April 2007 pay review (affecting most UK employees) now say:
Individuals may request details of this internal comparator information relating to their own role from their Manager. Managers should provide the information requested with an explanation of how the comparators are constructed and used.
This is an important victory, which has only come about because of tenacious campaigning by Amicus members over several years.
Please DO ASK your manager for your pay comparator.
If you have any pay or benefit comparator data, please feed the results back to your reps so that Amicus can build up a general picture of Fujitsu pay and benefits. This in turn will help Amicus provide you with better information, advice and support.
All members in Fujitsu outside Manchester should now have received a paper mailing to their home address including the pay comparators Amicus already had. Members in Manchester were given these at the AGM on 1st March (or can get a copy from their rep).
