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).

Unite members working for Fujitsu Services Limited in the Manchester bargaining unit have taken 32 strike days over compulsory redundancies, victimisation of reps and breaches of agreements. This follows 27 previous days of strike action.

Industrial action is currently suspended but the fight continues.

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