UK Consultative Forum

Fujitsuís UK Consultative Forum (UKCF) has published a report on its May 2007 meeting on CafeVIK. Not all of the subgroup reports are there yet, because of difficulties in getting HR agreement to the contents.
In October, the company will hold elections for representatives to fill all the seats on the UKCF. Though the UKCF is not a union body, UNITE and the other unions in Fujitsu work together to try to make it as effective as possible. The unions have been working together to try to identify candidates who can have the support of all trade unionists in the company.
Though the UKCF can never be a substitute for an effective independent trade union, it can play a positive role. Itís also important that the UKCF and the unions work together constructively. Having union members on the UKCF helps get the best from it – benefiting everyone.
If youíre interested in standing, please get in touch.
The UKCF held a further meeting yesterday.
