Key Information for Manchester Staff

UNITE reps, HR and line managers from across the business have monthly meetings to discuss matters affecting employees represented by UNITE in the north-west.
The minutes of these meetings are published on the “Amicus The Union” CafeVIK community.
Many of us complain that it’s hard to find the key information about working here. What’s the fax number for MAN35? Where is security? What do the green break-glasses by the doors do? What do those red light switches do? What’s the phone number for reception? How do I set up speed dial numbers on my Cisco IP phone? Where are the bus timetables? Which CafeVIK communities are useful? All this information and more is on one A4 poster that you can print off and pin on your desk.
On 31st March “Communicating” sent out the first “Fujitsu Manchester Newsletter”. This will be issued monthly and is jointly edited by UNITE, HR and Site Facilities. It is hoped that this will gradually reduce the volume of Communicating notices we all get by gathering many of them together in one place. This newsletter will be used for important information, so please take the time to at least skim through it. Isn’t it a sign of how much things have changed since the dispute that such a newsletter is possible!
