Jobs & Pension Updates

The company has started informing people that they have been provisionally selected for Compulsory Redundancy and whether they have been accepted for Voluntary Redundancy or not.
If you havenít done so already, please refer to the notice sent out on 2nd November which provided guidance on the situation and explained how you can update UNITE on your own status. This is important to ensure UNITE can provide the best support possible to members.
The note also asked members to volunteer to accompany colleagues in 1-1 meetings. Due to the volume and short timescale it wonít always be practical to provide a rep. Thanks to those who have already volunteered. If youíre willing to help a colleague, please get in touch as soon as possible.
If you are attending one of these meetings on your own behalf or with a colleague, we hope you will find the guide useful.
An important update on pensions is expected from the Pensions Forum (IPMC and UNITE) later today.

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.
