Manchester Protest for Jobs, Pay & Pensions

Please join the lunchtime protest over Jobs, Pay & Pensions:
12:30pm, Tuesday 13th October (***TODAY***)
Outside Manchester Central Park, near the “squareabout” at the front
UNITE is staging a protest to tell Fujitsu that Enough Is Enough, to build up our campaign, get some media coverage, have some fun and to remind everyone about the ballot.
The protest will have a humorous angle, arranged to look like a picket (though not asking people not to cross!) but with placards reading “Just Practising”. Some members are planning to bring along “L” plates.
The more people who take part, the more impact the protests have. Please get along if you can and encourage your workmates to join in – whether they’re already in UNITE or not.
Please be on time, as the intention is to make the protest short and to the point.
