Keep UNITE Informed

It is vital that we keep our membership records fully up-to-date and this requires your help. If there are any changes to your circumstances (particularly if you expect to leave Fujitsu on 11th December) it is vital that you inform UNITE. Failing to do so could give the company an opportunity to challenge the legality of any action.
If you are leaving Fujitsu, you don’t have to leave UNITE:

  • UNITE is the biggest union in the country, organising in every industry, so it is likely that UNITE would still be the appropriate union if you get a new job.
  • If you are unemployed, permanently retired or in full-time higher or further education, you can retain your membership for just £12.96 per year.
  • By maintaining your membership rather than leaving and rejoining, you avoid the “qualifying periods” for legal representation and other benefits.

Good luck to all the members who are leaving Fujitsu over the next week.

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.
