Consultative ballot reminder

Consultative ballot papers have been sent to all UNITE members employed by Fujitsu Services in the UK.
If you have already returned your ballot paper, please let your reps know using the voting button on this email.
If you havenít voted yet, please return your ballot paper as soon as possible.
If you havenít received your ballot paper , please let your reps know as soon as possible (unless you know that this has only just been sent, for example because youíve only just joined UNITE) so that this can be investigated and rectified.
Your reps are urging you to vote YES+YES to send the strongest possible message to the company that Enough Is Enough. Our goals are:
∑ Pay:
1. A fairer pay system
2. More money for employees
∑ Pensions:
3. Defend the ICL DB pension scheme
4. Improve pension provision for those with something worse
Questions? Donít forget the consultative ballot FAQ.
The ballot closes at noon on Wednesday 26th August and your reps expect to be able to announce the result soon afterwards.
UNITE is working alongside PCS, our sister union in Fujitsu, in the pay and pensions campaign. PCS is also balloting its members on the same timescale. Your reps are also in touch with colleagues facing attacks on pensions in other companies, with the aim of coordinating our campaigns for maximum impact.
