London Meeting on Pay and Pensions

UNITE Fujitsu London Meeting on Pay and Pensions – “Enough is Enough”
There has been anger around the continuing erosion of pay and benefits and most recently outcry about the proposed closure of the ICL Defined Benefit Pension Scheme to accrual. In response to this, the UNITE reps for the London area have called a local meeting for members to discuss pay and pensions and outline the national campaign strategy.
This message has been sent to members in the London, South & East region. Please encourage all to attend, including interested non-members.
We will also be joined by some Unite reps from other regions, who can help answer any pension queries.
We do hope that you will be able to attend and give your invaluable support to this campaign. Details and agenda below along with Map and Tube instructions.
Tuesday 18th August
6.30pm for 1 hour, prompt start
Rooms 3 + 4
