Fujitsu Manchester EGM, 4th December 2008

Donít forget the EGM:
Extraordinary General Meeting
1:30-2:30pm, Thursday 4th December
MAN34, conference rooms GCR1 & GCR2

This meeting is for all UNITE members in the Fujitsu Manchester bargaining unit.
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. If you experience any difficulties with release, please contact your rep in good time. Leaving it to the last minute will make it impossible for your reps to help you.
This is a shorter meeting than usual, with just two items on the agenda:
1) Nominations for UNITE Joint General Secretary
2) Dealing with job losses
There is just one item of ďAny Other BusinessĒ, which is an update on the case of Karen Reissmann, the UNISON union activist and local mental health nurse, who is campaigning for reinstatement after her sacking for speaking out in defence of the NHS.
1) Nominations for UNITE Joint General Secretary
Details of proposed nominations were circulated in the Outlook invitation sent out on Friday. In addition, Jackie Cook and Pauline Bradburn are seeking membersí endorsement to nominate Laurence Faircloth.
2) Dealing with Job Losses
The motion from the reps committee on dealing with job losses was circulated in the Outlook invitation on Friday.
