Your ballot papers are on their way – and may already have arrived. This is your opportunity to ask any questions and hear discussion with your colleagues about the ballot and industrial action.
Date – Tuesday, 13th October, 2009
Time – 12.30pm – 1.30pm, prompt start
Location – CR 0-2, CRE02

Please make arrangements with your manager in advance for cover whilst you attend the meeting if this is necessary.

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.
