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.

Sign the petition – defend the union

Unite members across Fujitsu Services Limited in the UK are fighting over job security, for union recognition, against victimisation of reps, and over pay and pensions. Members nationally took industrial from 28 February including 15 days of strikes and ongoing action short of strike, after 12 days of local strikes in Manchester.

INDUSTRIAL ACTION IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED but members have voted by 92% to reject a company offer.

Further information is available here including a downloadable appeal for support leaflet and how to donate to our strike fund.
