Organising Across Fujitsu

Anger about job security on top of real-terms pay cuts and loss of bonus is leading more and more Fujitsu staff to join UNITE, especially in the light of our recent successes on a wide range of issues.
A large membership is essential to have an effective union, but it is not sufficient. Organising is about employees having the confidence and organisation to solve workplace problems for themselves.
The “national protocol” agreed last year is helping members across the company to carry out union activity in the workplace without the sort of threats and intimidation which have sometimes occurred in the past.
Reps from across the country have discussed the protocol and identified what improvements are most important when it is next reviewed with the company.
WAR08 and Glasgow are some of the furthest advanced sites – UNITE has formally asked the company for union recognition at both. Sarah Holden, our UNITE senior organiser, had a second meeting with the company recently to discuss the recognition claim, and a timescale has been agreed for the company to respond to our proposals.
