Local Fujitsu Meetings

Unite at Fujitsu Crewe held another open meeting on 23rd July, this time on site at CRE02. It was well attended again, even with the site being quiet at the start of the holiday period. The minutes of the last meeting were accepted.
Members heard a report on the dismissal of Malcolm —- and await news of his appeal.
Members talked about our pay, pensions and the increase in Compromise Agreements offered to colleagues. Also, the significance of similar consultation and union campaigns in other companies was discussed. Feedback was strong – employees are still surprised that the company do not understand the strength of feeling that enough is enough.
The organising through the national Combine Committee and the upcoming consultative ballot was bolstered by members volunteering to help as part of a local campaign team when suggestions of practical local action came from the floor. Members took away more “UNITE for Fair Pay” lanyards.
The following motion was carried unanimously:
“that members in the Crewe area undertake local campaign activities to support the national Pay and Pensions strategy, guided by the Combine members for the North-West area.”
A further lunchtime meeting will be set for about four weeks’ time. It will again be held at the CRE02 site.
When’s Yours?
With our “Enough Is Enough” campaign around pay and pensions gathering pace, it is important that you have the opportunity to meet up with your reps and other members to discuss the situation – wherever you are based.
Meetings have recently taken place at sites in London, Staines and Wakefield, with more being planned for Newcastle and London.
If there’s not a meeting scheduled for your area, why not contact one of your local reps / contacts (see list below) to discuss setting one up?
If there’s no rep or contact where you are, why not volunteer?
