Fujitsu Redundancy Programme

Further to our notice last week, your UNITE and PCS reps are trying to ensure that there are plenty of members standing for the six Consultation Forums. Remember that the company has set a deadline that nominations must be received by HRdirect by noon on Thursday 3rd September. Please let your reps know if you are standing. You can also get in touch if you want some help with your election address. The nomination form is available on CafeVIK.
Please donít leave your area poorly represented.
Your reps are encouraging lots of members, reps and activists to put in their nomination forms. When the company finally reveals how many seats there are in each forum, who has stood etc, UNITE and PCS reps will work with the candidates to try to agree whether some candidates should withdraw, and who the unions should ask members to support in any elections. It is beneficial for all staff (union members or not) to have union members representing them in the consultation process, because they have access to additional support, advice and help through the union.
