National Organising Campaign

UNITE’s national organising campaign across Fujitsu continues to bear fruit, with more staff joining the union and getting involved, right across the country. Tony Hamill is the latest addition to our list of reps and contacts in Belfast.
One of the sites making most rapid progress is WAR08. Over 60 employees signed a collective grievance over shift pay (not sick pay as suggested by a typo in an earlier newsletter). Several union meetings have been held on site. Kevin Isaacs was allowed paid leave to undertake his reps “stage 1” training, despite not yet being covered by union recognition. Two new reps (John Edwards and George Latimer) have joined the growing list of reps.
