Combine Committee By-Elections

Earlier this year, members decided to set up a Combine Committee to coordinate UNITE’s work in Fujitsu at a national level.
Reps are directly elected by members on a regional basis. We currently have vacancies for five seats and would like members to fill them urgently, as the Combine Committee will continue to have a vital role to play in democratic decision-making in our “jobs, pay and pensions” campaign, and it is important that every area is well represented.
The vacancies are:
* Manchester Bargaining Unit (HOM99 based staff)
* North West (WAR based staff)
* Scotland
* Thames Valley & South West (BRA based staff)
* Thames Valley & South West (HOM99 based staff)
If you are willing to stand for election to the committee, please contact us by Thursday 8th October, including your name, your contact details (email, phone, mobile), which constituency you are standing for and (optionally) an election statement of up to 100 words.
For more details about the Combine Committee, see the original proposal and Standing Orders, or speak to one of the current Combine Committee members (identified with a “7” or “21” here).

Sign the petition – defend the union

Unite members across Fujitsu Services Limited in the UK are fighting over job security, for union recognition, against victimisation of reps, and over pay and pensions. Members nationally took industrial from 28 February including 15 days of strikes and ongoing action short of strike, after 12 days of local strikes in Manchester.

INDUSTRIAL ACTION IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED but members have voted by 92% to reject a company offer.

Further information is available here including a downloadable appeal for support leaflet and how to donate to our strike fund.
