Belfast UNITE Meeting on Pay and Pensions

Belfast UNITE Meeting on Pay and Pensions – “Enough is Enough”
Dear member,
Over the last few days, you will have received Ballot Papers asking you to vote on whether you are prepared to take industrial action and whether you are prepared to take action short of industrial action to defend your pay and pension.
Understandably, many people will have concerns that this is a big step for them to take. Therefore, your local Union reps are proposing holding a number of meetings to address any concerns you might have about this process.
This message has been sent to members in the Belfast area.
All are encouraged to attend, including interested non-members.
We will be joined by Joanne McWilliams, the local Unite organiser for Fujitsu.
Date – Wednesday 12th August
Time – 1.00 p.m. for 1 hour, prompt start
Location – Conference Room 2, IRE 11 – Trident House (this may be subject to change)
