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.

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.
