Manchester: EGM Today

Donít forget the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) for all UNITE members in the Manchester bargaining unit:
2pm-3:30pm, Friday 17th October
MAN35, ground floor, West wing

All members are entitled to attend in work time, but if your manager might need to arrange cover, you should ask them to confirm your release now.
The agenda will include:
∑ Discussion of reports from Reps (including NHS redundancies, Out Of Hours harmonisation, Learning, Safety, Environment and Equal Pay Review)
∑ Pay (including progress so far, results from the pay survey, pay and benefit scales, discussion on the proposed new pay and job structure for Customer Services, and deciding on a pay claim)
∑ Changing the UNITE structure at Fujitsu Manchester
∑ Elections for Reps
You will also be able to collect some new high-quality UNITE merchandise.

Having analysed the initial responses to the pay survey, your reps have drafted this pay claim for consideration at the EGM:
[the original notice included a draft pay claim]
Suggestions for amendments to improve it are very welcome. If possible, it would be helpful if you can submit them and/or discuss them with your reps in advance of the meeting, so that the meeting can be organised as well as possible.
This is an important meeting Ė please make sure you come along and have your say, and encourage colleagues to do the same.
