UK Consultative Forum Report

The company’s UK Consultative Forum (UKCF) had a meeting on 25/26 July 2007. The official report has now been approved by HR and published on CafeVIK.
Though the UKCF isn’t a union body, UNITE and the other unions in Fujitsu have put a lot of effort into trying to make the UKCF as effective as possible.
Nearly all the UKCF reps are now union members, and it has been noticeable that the attendance record of the few non-union members at UKCF meetings is poor.
Best wishes to Andy Batchelor, UNITE and UKCF rep from Solihull, who has left Fujitsu to train to be a priest.
Elections
All the seats on the UKCF will be up for election in October. UNITE is working with the other unions in Fujitsu to ensure there are a good range of candidates that everyone can support. If you are interested in standing, please get in touch.

Other Forums
Our Reps on the UKCF elect some of their number onto the Fujitsu Services Consultative Forum (FSCF) – the international equivalent. This is becoming more important as Fujitsu Services grows outside the UK. With the growing importance of offshoring, it would be particularly useful if the company implements the 2003 FSCF agreement and includes reps from outside the EU (e.g. Russia and South Africa).
The minutes of the July FSCF meeting are on CafeVIK.
The FSCF itself then sends a delegation to an annual meeting of the equivalent bodies across the Fujitsu group in Europe. The minutes of the July 2007 meeting are now on CafeVIK too.
